For too long of a time, I ate poorly. My focus was on things that tasted good (to me) and that I could get conveniently and on the cheap. That meant a lot of fast food.
And it’s only been relatively recently that I’ve started paying attention to what I eat and drink. Learning more about, and appreciating the importance of, healthy eating and living have provided many eye opening moments to say the least. Yet, it’s not a surprise when I say that I’ve never felt better, though I know that I need to figure out how to exercise more often and consistently.
Regarding healthier eating and living, what a great decision it’s been to join a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), where we receive a box of local, organic produce every other week. It’s been almost a year now, and there have been numerous benefits.
Here are some recent pictures of a recent CSA delivery (about a month ago) and meals featuring CSA items.

Wifey prepared all these meals – the great tasting salad, the soups, and the ramen noodles. I used to never eat these kinds of meals before meeting her. Thank you, Wifey!
