So you say you want to eat healthy right? In the CF community protein is king (as it should be), but what about your fruits (yes I said fruits) and vegetables? What about getting some some variety in your diet? Well, one way to do it is through membership in a CSA. Many of us at CFES belong to a CSA and more than a few belong to Riverdog Farm. The benefit of a CSA is that you get fresh, locally grown produce at an extremely competitive price. But the real benefit is the variety and the extremely high quality and of course taste!
But what am I going to do with all that produce that I never even heard of? How does a CSA work? What's a fava bean? What do I do with a turnip? What happens if I can't consume what I get each week? Here is an article from NPR that should give you a few ideas.
So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and jump in! It won't hurt, I promise.
