After binge-watching Orange is The New Black's 3rd season in a matter of 3 days, I started floating around Netflix titles.  I stumbled upon Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead 2 Two years ago, I'd watched the first one in where the documentary follows the lives of a few people who started juicing and changing their diets to incorporate little to no processed foods, and instead lots of fruits and veggies. The sequel does much of the same.  Of course after watching it, I thought "I need lots of veggies and I need to start juicing, now."

So I dusted off the Hamilton Beach juicer and have a list of needed vegetables to do a juicing reboot. In my kick-off, I also decided I should frequent Farmer's Markets more habitually....or just at all. Buying organic produce can get really expensive at a grocery store.  A great and affordable way to get all of the veggies and fruits to feed your family for the week is to hit up your local farmer's markets.  You'll also be supporting local farmers in your area.

Here's a schedule of some of the area farmer's markets:
