What’s the most fun tip in my Weight Loss Tool Box?
It’s easy, enjoyable, fun, and productive. You can do it alone or take the family. This tip is special in any season. You can enjoy this tip at home or while you are traveling. What could it possibly be?
Go to a Farmer’s Market!! That’s right. My most fun weight loss tip is to go to a Farmer’s Market. Why?
That is the number one reason why going to a Farmer’s Market is in my Weight Loss Tool Box. Where else can we find gorgeous, delicious, fresh, seasonal produce?
The goal is to be inspired to purchase, prepare, and enjoy the fabulous fruits and vegetables. The photo below showcases my purchases from last Sunday. Vegetable and herb inspiration at its finest!
There is a huge taste difference between Farmer’s Market freshly picked produce and store bought. Do a taste test, and see what you think.
The Farmer’s Market gives us the luxury of choice for many varieties of produce. From yellow and green zucchini, carrots of many colors, tomatoes of different varieties, purple cauliflower, watermelon radishes–the list goes on and on.
It’s fun to learn about new produce. Oftentimes the farmers are happy to share ways to prepare and store their fruits and vegetables.
This photo is kohlrabi. Delicious, unusual, and not easy to find.
Do an aroma test for yourself. Compare store bought herbs in plastic containers with Farmer’s Market herbs. What do you think? One of my favorites is basil.
Flowers at the Farmer’s Market add extra “sunshine”. Some Market’s sell flowers and vegetables to plant, as well as gorgeous cut flowers.
Shopping in a Farmer’s Market shows support for our community as well as the local farmers. Being a farmer is hard work. After their work week, farmers get up early on the weekend, drive for hours, set up beautiful stands, answer our questions, and deal with difficult weather.
Going to a Farmer’s Market is indeed the most fun tip in my Weight Loss Tool Box. These markets add value to our healthy eating program, benefit our community, and support our local farmers.
