I’ve now being trying a CSA box for a month and thought I’ve had enough experience that I’m ready to share my initial thoughts with you. A month ago, I blogged about my reasons for doing this and whether a CSA box is worth it. If you didn’t spot that post, I encourage you to read that one before this one because it’ll let you know my motivation and expectations, since I don’t plan to repeat it all in this post.
Are organic foods better for weight loss strategies than conventionally grown ones? Should I be paying more for these fruits, veggies and even meats to get better results on my bathroom scale? These are some of the questions I’ve been asking myself since I’ve been going to more farmer’s markets and Marley has signed up for one of those CSA box programs.
When I was growing up, I was told that there were very few mushroom health benefits. Everything I was taught said that there was a bit of zinc in them and very little else. Still, my family ate them because they were cheap, and they tasted good. Now, I’m always reading about how they’re practically superfoods.
I just read about the scariest study that now says that drinking sugary drinks on a daily basis can actually shorten your life. The horrifying thing about it is that I have always joked that a certain giant pop or gas station slushy or other syrup-based beverage was likely cutting a day off my life.
