Gonna eat healthier starting tomorrow. This weekend, I shopped for foods I never knew existed. I'm tired of eating processed food and junk and feeling like it.

I always revert to more fresh foods in the spring and summer

I will be hitting my friend Ron up for some home-grown produce. :)

Best of luck! I want to start eating healthier too. Unfortunately organic/non-processed foods tend to be more expensive, but that shouldn't deter me.

I agree, it's more expensive. It's easy to see why there is a higher obesity rate in low-income populations.

That's really the problem with all that pre-processed stuff. It tastes great but leaves you feeling like crapola. Good for you for taking control of what's in your food!

This is a pretty radical change for me. A lot of what's healthy is also harder to digest, so this will be interesting...

Yea for fresh fruits and veggies! Hope you enjoy your new diet and stick with the changes. Oh, and gazpacho is a great summer recipe for fresh veggies, so give that a try!

We joined a CSA this summer in the hopes of forcing ourselves to eat more veggies and try new ones. We were good about going to the farmer's market last summer, but we didn't often try new things, beyond new kinds of squash and greens. I would have never bought a daikon radish, for example, but I have three of them in the fridge to use right now. Cheers to your good health!

Thanks! What's a CSA?

A crop sharing sort of program. Small farms will do this and sell what they call shares which entitles you to either a predetermined box of goodies once a week for so many weeks. In the case of the one we signed up for, we actually get to go to their barn and choose 8 units (3 squash=1 unit, a head of lettuce=1 unit, 2 cucumbers=1 unit, dozen eggs=1 unit, etc.) for the half share we purchased for the next 20 weeks. Initially, it's quite a chunk of change to throw down. But it works out to about $25 a week. We just have to supplement with minimal groceries (mostly grains and a bit of lean meat here and there) and I can plan meals around whatever is in the share that week. Single friends of ours split a share among a couple of households.

I've heard of those. We have a local farmer's market on Saturday mornings I need to get myself to, not to mention an ex-boyfriend who would still supply me with a few goodies from his organic garden. ;)

Those are probably much better sources for you. ;)

I love fresh veggies. Let me know if you're looking for any recipes, I have some good ones.

I'm sticking with a plan that has lots of recipes in it, but once I get used to it, I'll branch out.
