One of the main things that Whole30 is teaching me – is just how amazing REALLY fresh food is. I’m not talking about going to the grocery and picking up some “fresh vegetables.” No sir. I’m talking about going to your local farmer’s market and buying locally grown, farm to table, fresh, just picked from the dirt FOOD. The difference in the taste and freshness is second to none, and I can only imagine how our bodies love all of the nutrients. Not to mention when you buy locally, you are supporting the local economy, community and farms.
Yesterday I made breakfast 100% from food that I got at the farmer’s market. 2 fresh eggs, strawberries, blackberries, peaches from The Peach Truck, and sweet potatoes roasted with garlic scapes and topped with homemade Whole30 ketchup and fresh cilantro. The taste of one of these strawberries alone will blow your mind – they are NOT your store bought berries! They kind of change your life.
My new obsession is garlic scapes – how pretty are they?!
You can roast them, sauté, make a pesto… Stay tuned – more to come from these beauties.
So, this is just a little post to encourage you to go to your local farmer’s market and BUY SOME FOOD!! Challenge yourself to make an entire meal from what you get from your local farms. I may just never go to the grocery again. 🙂 If you end up taking on this healthy and delicious challenge – share your pictures and tag #farmfreshchallenge. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
