Fitness Minutes: 42,633

My Goals:
*Support local farms, farmers markets, food co-ops, and CSAs.

*Maintain a sense of balance in all things.

My Program:
I am trying to live as a responsible citizen of the planet by supporting local, sustainable agriculture practices whenever possible.

Choosing a diet which makes whole, responsibly grown foods the heart of its plan has brought me to a place of peace, not only in my weight loss journey, but in many other aspects of life as well.

Personal Information:
Aside from being a total foodophile and locavore, I relish and find joy in chatting about sports, folding origami, reading, and learning something new as often as possible.

Other Information:
"Depending on how we spend them, our food dollars can either go to support a food industry devoted to quantity and convenience and "value" or they can nourish a food chain organized around values--values like quality and health. Yes, shopping this way takes more money and effort, but as soon as you begin to treat that expenditure as a kind of vote--a vote for health in the largest sense--food no longer seems like the smartest place to compromise."

Hi there! Thanks for posting on my Spark Page. Your healthy lifestyle is what I try to follow as well and I am intrigued and will definitely check out your cookbook. I must say I don't experiment too much with recipes as when I do they tend to be awful and wind up in the trash which makes me feel guilty. By the way, you look amazing and I just wanted to say congratulations on your health journey - because the journey is way more than just losing weight.

Have a great day!

I just dropped by to say hello after reading your blog on the farmer's market. The famer's market is definitely taking a foot hold in the community, plus summer is a time when local farmer's have roadside stands. Thanks for the information! By the way, congratulations on your success!
