Oh yikes you are far down there. I am from Toms River but live in Texas now. I still go to NJ a couple of times a year. Well at least the Bennies are gone and you won't have to fight them going up the Parkway to get to Momouth!
Thanks, Barrister. I'll have to look for the TJ in Monmouth County. I'm in Little Egg Harbor, the southernmost point in Ocean County, so it will still be a long drive for me. I think Marlton is the closest one to me, but I'll definitely look for the one in Monmouth County. They're getting closer! Thanks again for the tip! Dina

@Doinitright2012 Thanks! My best friend lives in Erwinna PA and I visit her a lot on the weekends--it's beautiful there! Love all the farmer's markets!
I live in a townhouse, so my garden space is very limited, but I do have several organic container gardens on my deck (tomatos, herbs, berries, eggplant, zucchini). Unfortunately, there is no way I could raise chickens, but believe me if I could, I would. I love fresh eggs!
Welcome! I am relatively new to the group as well, though I've been eating local and organic for 4 plus years now. I live in rural PA and am lucky enough to produce/harvest most of my own food. Is there any way you could plan a garden for next summer? Do you have any land enough to raise a few egg layers? You would have to check your ordinances there, of course, but it would be a start.
Good luck to you on your healthy life style and weight loss goals.

Hi! My name is Dina; I'm 49 and I live and work from home at the NJ Shore. (It is nothing like the TV show here!)
I'm so glad I found this group! I'm looking for a way to lose weight while staying on an organic, gluten-free, sugar-free diet. I'm enjoying going to farmer's markets in the summer, but it will be challenging to find organic produce in the winter in NJ. I don't live near a health food store, so I do a lot of shopping on Vitacost (No, I don't work for them or endorse them!)
I also live alone & don't enjoy cooking, so any quick healthy menu ideas would be greatly appreciated!
