Since before I began studying holistic nutrition, I had been keen on reducing my environmental footprint. Over time, regular ol’ household cleaners were swapped for vinegar-based concoctions, food was being stored in jars and reusable cling-wrap alternatives, cloth bags became the new plastic, and my consumption of packaged products was reduced overall. Since then, I’ve not only cut down on waste and saved some cash, I’ve also learned to get creative and make the best with what I’ve got. By the way… I recognize it may seem a tad contradictory to get all environmentalist on you, yet have a photo of a Ziploc bag front and centre. I’ve accepted that the process of reduction and elimination does not happen overnight and so I put to use one of the few already-used baggies I had kickin’ around.

By now, I’m sure most of you know I’m an avid enthusiast for organically grown, locally sourced produce. I think it’s tremendously important to support local farmers and stand strong behind the non-GMO movement. Thanks to this nifty infographic, courtesy of Fix, it makes understanding the how and why behind Community Supported Agriculture {CSA} all the more palatable.

When you join a CSA, you sign up for regular deliveries of fresh fruits, vegetables, and in some cases meat and dairy from the participating farms. Depending on the schedule of the CSA, you’ll have the option for weekly, semi-weekly, or monthly deliveries. The contents of each delivery vary week-to-week and are wide in variety and consistent with the NAG {natural, alive, good quality} way of eating; bringing back nutrient-rich, farm-fresh food that changes with the seasons. Joining a CSA is truly a one-of-a-kind food experience that respects our bodies, our planet, and our shared tomorrow.

Speaking of CSAs, my friends over at Fresh City Farms are in the process of launching meal kits. A series of kits that include pre-portioned ingredients, instructions, as well as a recipe to make a weeknight meal. And yep, you guessed it, delivered straight to your door. Now, if that isn’t your ideal, I don’t know what is.


PS. An insight into what my late-summer, northeastern delivery looked like…
