get set...


Challengers! THREE days! Are you getting prepared? Here is a favorite Friday tip for my Cedar Valley Challengers...

If you haven't, try out the local Farmer's Market! A great way to stock your house with challenge friendly foods is to hit up our local farmers for their produce and you have a great opportunity tomorrow to do just that!

Cedar Falls Saturday morning down by Overman Park...8:30-12. 

Waterloo Saturday morning down at the Public Market...8:30-12.

I had the great privilege of being on the vendor side of market last summer and these fellow market friends are awesome people with wonderful fresh produce. The best part, you will probably save money buying from them then if you went to your local grocery store. You get fresh, support locally grown, and know where your food came from that you put in your body. So stroll on through and bring your shoppers bag...  here are my go-to items I like to get downtown on Saturday morning!

kale 
green beans
sweet potatoes
zucchini
beets
snow peas
spinach

Now, there is much more...but these are my favorite. And don't be afraid to try something new or ask a farmer down there just what is kale or another food you might not recognize. They love to answer questions and share their products. The more you know, the better you grow!
