Nutrition for dancers: Eat Fresh!

Eat Fresh – AND I’m not talking about Subway! Eat fresh – eat local – at your local       farmers market!

Something New – Farmers markets feature what’s in peak season which often can lead to finding items that stretch your culinary imagination.  Like gooseberries, donut peaches, or even 3 – inch thick carrots.

Learn and Ask – Farmers love to share their ideas, cooking strategies, and favorite sells.  It’s wise to learn, good to listen, and good to eat up.

Prepare a Meal – On what caught your eye.  Maybe some fresh tacos, a unique egg scramble, a fresh smoothie, a rhubarb pie. Pick and choose what you like!

Freshly Nutritious – It’s true.  Fresh, recently picked fruits and vegetables have higher levels of antioxidants, phytonutrients, and better yet:  They even taste more delicious.

Access to FRESH, local foods – Nothing beats this.  Everything tastes better even with an ounce of freshness.  Well that and a little love in the kitchen.

Supports Local Farmers – Keeps the money you spend closer to your neighborhood too.  Let’s face it that communal support boosts local economic growth, healthier living as well as greater purpose.

Not just about fruits and vegetables – Local farmer markets are not just about fruits and vegetables.  Visit different booths for local dairy, protein products, and grains.

It’s Fun too – It’s becoming more of a societal norm, to visit farmers markets and it’s also a good time too.  A good venture alone, with a friend, significant other, and family.
