  2. I’ve just started reading a really fascinating book by Nina Planck called “Real Food: What to Eat and Why.” In it she talks about what real food is and why things we, now insitinctively, think of as being bad for us aren’t necessarily so.
    The reason I mention this is that she talks about growing up on a vegetable farm in VA (yay – my state!! :)) and how much of a presence fresh veggies were in their lives, along with real butter, real eggs, real dairy. Before dinner her mother would set out bowl of fresh carrot, apple, or turnip sticks so that they could eat raw fruit and veggies if they were hungry.
    They were allowed to, and encouraged to, eat as much fresh fruit and veggies as they wanted. They also, of course, ate locally and seasonally. During the winter they would eat their own canned tomatoes and frozen red bell peppers.
    For us, growing our own and buying from our local farmer’s market has REALLY increased how many fruits and veggies we eat per day. Today we stopped by the farmer’s market and picked up fresh broccoli, spring onions, peas, and strawberries. They boys ate fresh, raw carrots and broccoli for lunch!! We’ve also been harvesting our own mini-crop of strawberries and to be able to pick something you grew (organically of course!) and pop it in your mouth is the best feeling … no, I take that back, the best feeling is watching your kid do it & seeing how much they love it and how much joy they get out of it!!
    We’re getting ready to begin getting raw milk again and I can’t wait to make our own butter once more. It just simply can NOT compare to store bought milk, much less store bought butter!
