Did you know March is National Nutrition Month®?
Sponsored by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, National Nutrition Month is a time to emphasize the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. With healthier habits, we can achieve and maintain a healthy weight, reduce the risk of chronic disease, and promote overall health.
As we head into spring, what better way to make informed food choices than to connect with your local farm? Whether through the CSA or the local farmers’ markets, buying fresh fruits and vegetables directly from the farm means you’re automatically making healthier choices and focusing on the right foods.
Plus, I can say from experience: getting a weekly CSA is fun! If you’re looking for more inspiration to cook healthy meals, you’ve just found it…
Stay tuned for photos and updates on the CSA, nutrition tips, and healthy recipes to help you make the most of your seasonal produce!
