Taking advantage of Road Side stands and Farmers Markets

What a great town we live in to be able to every Saturday go to a Farmers Market or everyday if you go into Nashville. So many locals that care about our healthy eating and creating a sustainable earth.  Supporting the local effort where ever you are ensures that large corporations that are trying to take over our food supply with over processed, Genetically Modified, non grass fed meats, will have a tough battle ahead.

If you are wandering what this is like, watch Food Inc it is now playing on PBS . You can also watch The Future of Food Please as you drive around the rest of this summer stop and buy a tomato or a watermelon you will thank me, the taste is far better and its amazing when its locally grown how not all of them are the same size and shape 🙂

We enjoyed some great food from Delvin Farms, The Pink Sugar Bowl, which has an awesome Farmers Market Challenge going on and makes the best gluten free breakfast cookies that I could eat all day! 🙂 I enjoyed some amazing Kombucha Tea from a lady selling the “Best lemonade I’ve ever had” (according to my cousin Sierra). The Kombucha is made by My Booch and is is sold locally, I tried Peach and it was great! I was also given some grass fed beef from High Lonesome Ranch that is in Shelbyville. I had not had Beef in over 6 years. I chose to try half of the 90/10 burger we grilled and it was very good. I am excited to visit the ranch and see the great way they are choosing to raise their cattle.

What have you been cooking up this summer from your local Farmers Markets, or road side stands?  Did you have your own garden you ate from, like my mom did?  Her kale was AMAZING!
