OK...I'm just doing a little follow-up on my Eggplant and thought I would let everyone know...If you have never tried eggplant, you may want to give that little plant a go.
I just prepared a stir fry with it and it turned out so good! My husband wanted more. I will definately be fixing this again.

Thanks for the tips!

Just thought I would add that trying something new is also a good thing. I just purchased some Baby Bok Choy and found a really nice simple recipe using Bean Sprouts and a little chicken broth and Soy Sauce. I also added just a small hand full of BBQ Pork slices all chopped up and it turned out great. What a healthy treat! emoticon

Excellent points and I will say...if you haven't tried a local farmers, please do. My husband and I did this past summer and it was so very enjoyable. It's so different from the supermarket and it's nice to know that you are helping someone locally!

"An important part of buying local is making an effort to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables when they are in season in your area. Although today's global marketplace allows us to buy foods grown virtually anywhere in the world all year round, these options are not the most sustainable.

By purchasing local foods in-season, you eliminate the environmental damage caused by shipping foods thousands of miles, your food dollar goes directly to the farmer, and your family will be able to enjoy the health benefits of eating fresh, unprocessed fruits and vegetables. Buying seasonal produce also provides an exciting opportunity to try new foods and to experiment with seasonal recipes. And it simply tastes better!

Even if you don't want to change any of your eating habits, you can at least make sure to buy local produce when it's available, rather than purchase the same type of food from 3000 miles away!

For an added challenge, try to eat most foods only when they are in season, or can seasonal food in order to eat and enjoy it all year round."
