I'm really big on health and fitness. I've always been an active athlete in school and even post school I stayed active. Until I was put on bed rest during my pregnancy a few times and then was told I had to cut back on working out. No working out?! WTH?! My main reason for wanting to keep up with my routine was so I didn't land into that category when women just let themselves go during and after pregnancy. So my doctor sure did rain on my parade because I sure was cute with my baby bump under my Under Armour tops ::sigh:: So here we are, 2 years post delivery and I STILL have not lost ALL of my pregnancy weight. Making progress but, it's taking too long for me.
Time to get back to the old me. And that means changing my eating habits too. I've already adopted the Clean Eating (or Eat Clean Diet as some know it by) for the household in January. The Hubster came home from deployment in March and had to just deal with the changes. I mean they weren't HUGE changes...we just weren't buying too many overly processed and packaged foods. Besides, I've been having so much more fun making stuff from scratch.
The produce here on base and even off base at grocery stores just haven't impressed me all that well. I mean, it's good and all but, I have found lots of rotten items in bulk bags and blah blah blah. Farmer's Markets are always the way to go for me but, sometimes I don't feel like getting up early on the weekend to drive half an hour to get to one. So that leads us to....
Family Farm Fresh is a local company that delivers FRESH produce to your door!! They work with LOCAL farmers (we're stationed in the middle of an agricultural area)! That means, my produce will not be on a truck for days to get to me. Or even from out of the country! Picked just minutes away from where I am. Now that's what I'm talking about! We received our first basket today.
