Gratituesday: Thankful for Real Foods
This Gratituesday I'm thankful for Real Foods. God has given me the ability to grow my own fruits and vegetables. I'm no expert on gardening but have learned a lot through trial and error. My grandparents have taught me much of my gardening knowledge as well.
I'm thankful for all the local farmer's markets. They provide meats, homemade baked goods, local honey and vegetable plants. If your a local to Virginia check out Buy Local Virginia.org for where to buy food, farmers markets and different events going on in your area.
My definition for Real Foods are foods that are grown organically, naturally and not processed. I believe eating Real Food is accentual for our bodies. Fruits and veggies are loaded with vitamins and minerals the body needs. Remember that saying your G'ma said "An apple a day keeps the doctor away". Just try and stay away from the chemically sprayed apples. Apples are one of the heaviest sprayed fruits- the dirty dozens.
