We live in an area where fresh produce is bountiful most of the time.
When I can't get to the local farmers market, then I head to Growers Outlet not too far from my house. And they never disappoint.
I stock up on fruits and veggies at a fraction of the cost of the local supermarket AND they are fresh from the local fields. Not shipped cross country, sitting in truck or warehouse days on end, packed in boxes, covered in wax, etc. When not from the local area farms, they clearly show where they are from and again, typically not very far away. I stopped in this past week on my way home from work and bought all my fruits/veggies for the week for $14.51! I would have spent at least twice that much I am certain at the regular store. If you are local, you should try them out!
Heard of Naturebox? I signed on with them about 6 months ago. Each month for $19.95 I receive a box of 5 different snacks. Delicious and healthier snacks delivered to my door. At this point, I have tried the bulk of their snacks and must say that I have not found a snack that I have not liked yet. What a great way to start the New Year. Healthier snacks, healthier you!
The New Year.
Out with the old, in the with the new. This year has been tough for our family to say the least. I will be glad when it is over. If you have been following my blog you know that I changed jobs in February (after 17 years at my old company so this was no easy transition), Grandma passed away in May and then Uncle Mike passed away in November. And more recent my mothers apartment back east burnt down. She was able to get herself out and her dogs but had a few burns that she is being treated for. She lost all of her possessions but I am thankful that she is alright. She is staying with my brother and his family back east until she gets back on her feet. Talk about ending the year with a bang right. I know there are a few days left so perhaps I should not tempt fate.
What are you lovin'?
