Food is your Medicine!
I am sure you have heard this quote before.
Unfortunately our culture really struggles to believe this is true at the very core of our life. Instead our culture believes that pharmaceuticals are the only way to good health. Pharmaceuticals have an important part to play in our health, but-
“Health Care starts in the kitchen.”
At Ideal Health NOW we provide not only proper nutritional tools in the form of the Ideal Protein product, plan, and coaching, but from day 1 we begin to help you learn to eat REAL food that is free from harmful processed carbohydrates. At the core of cellular health our bodies need protein and veggies.
Most people struggle with the VEGGIE part of the Ideal Health NOW plan, because they have allowed their taste buds to move away from healthier foods, like Veggies or they lack the experience in purchasing and preparing Veggies.
For my family we have found a great resource that not only helps us purchase a variety of organically grown veggies, but also dairy products, and organically fed meats from local farmers.
This great resource that we use is called a Farm Share where I purchase a share with the local farmers for Vegetables, Meat and Dairy.
The Vegetable Share is a program where we pay a quarterly fee ( cost is $ 25 per week) for organic fresh vegetables from a local farmer. Those of us who are part of the Farm Share meet up with the farmers each Tuesday between 4 pm – 6 pm for our weekly bounty. Owning a Veggie Share challenges me to be a good steward and utilize the fresh veggies that I receive each week in creative ways which encourages my hubby and sons enjoy eating veggies and it is more economical for us.
As the seasons change – so does the produce selections.
We have received – Tomatoes, Zucchini, Kale, Radishes, Squash, Turnip Greens, Cucumbers, and all kinds of colored Peppers. We have learned to use what we have for the week and spend less time and money at the grocery store for substandard produce. The VEGGIES taste richer and better.
Another part of the Farm Share is the Meat & Dairy Share
This week – not only did I get fresh organically grown eggplant, kale, radishes, purple hull peas and peppers, but the Farm Share had extra organic jerky sticks, bacon, & eggs to purchase…. The eggs were different – – – – they were DUCK EGGS.
I had to research the difference between free range – organic chicken eggs and duck eggs. A very interesting read – I hope you look it up.
If you are tired of bland veggies, bland eggs, bland meats that do not seem as fresh as you would hope….. you might consider a Farm Share of Veggies, Fresh organic Meats, Dairy and Eggs from arfarmshare.org
Start treating your family’s health with the greatest medicine provided by GOD – Fresh Vegetables, Dairy, Meats, and Eggs.
