One of my goals has been to eat healthier. We have made many changes over the years by eliminating chemicals and not so healthy ingredients in foods we buy. This year I took it a step further to simplify my life. We joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) co-op. You pay a fee to the farmer upfront and you get a share of the crops. Not only are you helping local farmers, but you gain from this.
If you know me, I want organic, non-GMO vegetables. We found Deep Roots Farm NY is just prefect for us. We now get a half share of whatever the farm has to offer. Yes, we are eating more vegetables. We are trying vegetables that we never have before. I am spending time looking up .ecipes and that’s fun for me.
From a simplification point, I don’t have to buy vegetables in the grocery store anymore. We are getting organic vegetables at a fraction of the cost. Our half share comes out to $20 per week. That’s a bargain compared to what I used to spend and it’s simple. Every Wednesday, we pick up a shopping back full of vegetables and it couldn’t be simpler.
