School is in wind down mode, on a crash course straight into finals. I think I may have already mentioned the month of October and half of November was a small hell, to say the least. The amount of exams … Continue reading
Since we’re on the topic of books (check out my last post on Child of Mine) the most recent book I read that I could not put down was called Diabesity by Francine Kaufman, M.D. She is a pediatric endocrinologist … Continue reading
Howdy everyone! We just finished the midterm period at school. Already looking back at the first half of my semester, I feel pretty accomplished. I have learned a lot and feel pretty confident about nutrition for pregnancy, lactation and breastfeeding … Continue reading
Hey old friends! Wow. What can I say…. Not much I suppose, except that it has been way too long since I wrote and I am pretty embarrassed. I love writing and I love hearing from you all. But so much … Continue reading
Hi everyone! Some of you already know this, since I “spilled the beans” on Facebook just after I found out, but, life for me has turned upside down, in a good way…in a fantastic, amazing way, actually. A little over … Continue reading
We received so many green goodies from our CSA, it was glorious! We visited family in Pennsylvania and brought most of it with us to share since we couldn’t have possibly eaten it all ourselves. Our first endeavor with the … Continue reading
Hi everyone, I hope you’re all doing well. Here’s that catch-up post I promised. So much has gone on these past few months and it has been quite exciting. We went to Nantucket for our anniversary in that time too. … Continue reading
Hi everyone! It’s been a while, I know. This past month has been an unbelievable, incredible whirlwind and I promise we’ll catch up this week. But today I wanted to write about something that is important to me as an aspiring registered dietitian, someone who cares about the health of people through what we put into our bodies.
Back in March I was contacted by one of the local farms in the New York area, Common Hands Farm. I wrote this fantastic post about them and gave some detailed information on how to sign-up. Today is the first day of pick-up and I am super excited to see all of the green goodies I get! If you are in the Brooklyn area (specifically, Park Slope, Gowanus, Carroll Gardens, etc.) and still looking for a CSA to join for the season, Common Hands is distributing at Brooklyn Boulders. You can still sign-up! Stop by this evening and see what they’re all about. Or you can e-mail Tess at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, if you were strongly considering signing up but have not yet provided payment or a contract, you can bring these with you later this evening to finalize your membership.
I always say, spending a little extra on good food to be put into your body is an investment in your own health. Think of it as spending $25 on extending your life and the lives of your loved ones. Believe me, one day they will thank you for making them eat their veggies.
Hope to see you at Common Hands later this evening! Pick-up begins at 5PM and ends at 8. Brooklyn Boulders is located at: 575 Degraw Street, Brooklyn, NY 11217.
Stay tuned for some delicious recipes I come up with using the beautiful, local, organic produce I receive from Common Hands. So excited!!!
With love and veggies!
