Farm fresh

Happy Thursday! It’s my Friday, I’m heading out of town tonight for a wedding this weekend. I’m one of the bridesmaids and the events start around lunch on Friday! I’m hoping to get a short morning run in before the fun begins! I moved my training schedule around a bit this week to accommodate my wedding weekend. But let’s back up, last weekend, I went to a wedding shower and town festival in Southwestern Wisconsin. Thanks to Amanda for letting me link up today!farm-fresh

Two of my closest friends from college grew up in really small towns (ie population: 2,500). We were at my friend’s parents house and they had chickens! This meant that I got to have farm fresh cage free eggs on Sunday morning. I was so excited. My friend’s dad even showed us the chicken coop and left the eggs for us to collect on Sunday morning. We made a college friend staple for Sunday breakfast, “Egg in a hole”. I’ve seen this called many other things, but it’s an over easy egg in a piece of bread. Runny yolk with bread is the best weekend breakfast ever.

If it were up to me, I would be eating farm fresh local food at all times and I would always know about the source of my food. But I do live in a one bedroom apartment in the city of Denver. Oh and I have a full time job in accounting. So… needless to say I don’t eat farm fresh at all times, not even most of the time. I wanted to share some tips about eating farm fresh with you!

Farm Fresh Tips

  1. Join a CSA, this might be a good option for you and your family
  2. Farmers markets
  3. Try to shop at local grocery stores, or the local section of chain grocery stores
  4. See if you go pick berries or apples at a local farm
  5. Look for local fresh berries in the woods (we used to do this in northern MN)
