Community-Supported Agriculture is good for local farmers AND your waistline! By investing in a farm for a season, you, get a weekly share of locally grown fresh - often organic - veggies and fruits (many farms offer beef, poultry, and dairy as well). I've learned to love a huge variety of veggies!

in a good all-vegetable cookbook to learn when foods are in season and how to prepare them to bring out the natural yumminess of the vegetable rather than hiding it under unhealthy sauces, in casseroles, or as bit-player side dishes.
