Local Grown Ingredients

It’s funny that people will spend $5.00 on a Starbucks drink but have trouble with the expense of buying organic veggies and fruits.  I was certainly an offender back in the day and I absolutely said –“It’s too expensive to eat healthy”.  Then, I had an epiphany realizing that everything that I put in my body was either destroying or improving my health.  Have you priced cancer or autoimmune disease meds and treatments lately?  I can guarantee you that pharmaceuticals are expensive and are only getting pricier!  Today I shelled out a pretty penny at the Binford Farmer’s Market and got some amazing healthy food!
