A trip to the
Farmer’s Market Near You by Brenda Jaeck
We’re approaching that time of year when it is a GREAT
idea to frequent your local farmer’s market. Why?
Just some of the reasons are summarized below:
Fresh produce – what better place to find a plethora
of fresh veggies – perhaps you’ll even find one you have not tried
or cooked previously.
Know where your food comes from – straight from
the source – what could be better than that? Also to eat food that has not traveled
across the globe is a good goal – it’s fresher and it uses a lot
An adventure – it’s an event to go to a farmer
market. You never know who
you’ll meet or what you’ll get to experience.
Outside fresh air – what a better way to connect with
nature and the food you eat than at an outside venue. You’ll breathe fresh air and take in
a few rays instead of breathing recycled air and experiencng fluorescent
Support local farmers – independent farmers are becoming few
and far between – what better way to show your support than to come out
and chat with them and buy their wares.
Promote community where you live – you’ll
interact with people of all types that live in your community. Perhaps you’ll even meet your
neighbors that you don’t know.
Getting out to a farmer market is a great experience in and of
itself – AND you leave with a bunch of yummy (and healthy) produce.

to Balance –How will you bring more balance to your life? How about a healthier, more balanced life
Are your health concerns
impeding you from living life fully? Do you want to change your relationship
with food from the inside out? Are you seeking deep seeded balance and
would eagerly welcome the opportunity to work with you on a personal
level. We can work together privately
to create a customized life-long plan for you AND create the steps to
incorporate those changes into your existing routines.
counseling services I can help you create and maintain balance in your life
by using nutrition as a focus and a tool. To do this I look at your
entire lifestyle to achieve maximum health. This is accomplished
through education and private consultations where an individualized program
is developed for you. These consultations include evaluating your
current diet and overall lifestyle and then making easily implemented,
gradual changes. Additionally, you’ll receive outside information
in the form of articles, books, tapes and recipes. Also included are
additional monthly forms of education and participation -- activities like
cooking coaching, health food store shopping hints, light exercising
functions and other activities. My practice is telephone based, allowing
for maximum flexibility and ease.
