Fulfill: From the supermarket to the farmers market.

My word of the year this year is Fulfill.

I've been really focused on bringing good things into actuality and so far this has been my most productive word of the year. I've definitely had fun ushering it all into being!

When I started school at Integrative Nutrition I knew it would change me beyond what I could measure in my mind and I was spot on. On our sister trip Kayla and I watched Food Inc. for the first time and I keep replaying our conversation in my mind. NOW that we know better we have to DO better! It's not one of those documentaries that you watch and then go about your 'normal' life.

So part of fulfill, doing my part for supporting local and supporting our health is going from the supermarket to the farmers market for produce! Sunday marked our 1st weekly trip!

Another pro for going to the farmers market is that you have to use real money! What a concept! It's my favorite thing ever not to have to re live a purchase later reconciling my check book or credit card. Down with the credit card companies (can you tell I learned some plastic lessons the hard way)!

Everything is so beautiful!

I was so comfy in this sweater and then I see the picture. Umm frumpy mcFumperson! Don't worry Jenn it's already in my craft room ready to grow up to become something else I can't believe it's been over a year since our first What Not to Wear!

This little strawberry plant came home with us :)

Part of healthy eating is eating with the seasons. Nowadays it's so hard to know what's actually in season when you are in the supermarket. At the farmers market if it's not there it's probably not in season!

We had 40 bucks to spend and we spent every last dime. Our splurge was on local honey for $8 and eggs from very happy chickensfor $8. I know! $8 bucks for eggs, I just kept saying it over and over again but I have to tell you they are the best eggs I've ever had!

It was a perfectly perfect California day, not a cloud in the sky!
I shared my sunglasses with Cliff. I don't think they look half bad. LOL

Here's the take for 40bucks. 12 eggs, 4 lemons, 1 garlic, 1 onion, 1 bag of spinach, brussel sprouts, asparagus, green onions, broccoli, honey and a sweet little strawberry plant! Not sure the $$$ eggs will be a staple in our house and the honey will last a while so next week we should be able to get a few more pretty greens in exchange for our green.

Do you go to farmers markets?
