June in the Valley...

Images; A few farms near my local vegetable farmers. I support local farmers when I can, and my family and I enjoy our weekly vegetable pick-ups at the Old Path organic farm in Sauquoit. Our weekly potpourri of fresh vegetables, offers us a challenge each week to prepare and enjoy nutritious and fresh vegetables such as kale, beets, radishes, arugula and spinach to name a few. Normally we would not purchase some of these items so it can be a challenge to find recipes that our family will enjoy.

I also appreciate the crops that summer brings with it. I'm currently pondering about altering my food intake to vegetarian, vegan, or just a modified all inclusive diet with all healthy options and limited bad food intakes. I know I haven't completed my first 1/2 marathon yet, but the more I read about it, I thing Ultras fit my personality and drive. I know, I know, I have to work my way up to ultras and be very careful not to injury my body along the way.

Kelly, moderation and balance, I'm sure most agree, is the key to success in any endeavor including nutrition. So, I agree that at the very least enjoy the local and seasonal bounty that your local farmer(preferably organic) provides because that is a win-win all the way around. And will certainly help to keep you're body in tune to keep running healthy and happy for years to come. The local co-op I belong to has helped to make me and my family more attuned to the excellent nutrition and taste that fresh-organic vegetable provide, as well as the opportunity to be a part of an agri community that gives way more than it takes out of this tired old planet. best wishes on your running goals!
