But for those who do not grow their own vegetables I highly recommend you join a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) which is an amazing way to make sure you are supporting local farmers AND providing organic, nutritious, local produce for your family.
To find one near you check this out
A great site I just discovered!
I also highly recommend the book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver…life changing and enlightening!
The lu$ty ladies and I started a supper club. A brilliant concept where we meet at my house and make several meals for the week and then divide them up for each family. A great way to have fun cooking (even though cooking by oneself is also fun) save money and ensure that your family eats healthy and delicious meals even when you are super busy.
Also we can sneak healthy ingredients such as veggies, grains and beans in to standard dishes and trick out hubbys into consuming them none the wiser.
We made Swiss Potato Kugel (a lovely Jewish casserole to which we added bacon) country style Salisbury steaks, bacon wrapped chopped steak, turkey sausage jambalaya and chicken enchiladas.
We should make a cookbook. The Lu$ty Ladies Guide to Domesticity.
