I’m loving the GROW Method! It seems like such a simple thing to save your leftovers, like we looked at last week when we talked about saving food. Today’s principle is just as easy to incorporate… buy seasonal. If you have a farmers’ market in your area you’ve got this one taken care of. Creating the conditions that it takes to grow fruits and vegetables that are out of season takes a tremendous amount of energy. Let’s take advantage of the foods that are growing near us in season. That is a stretch for me, because it takes a bit more planning on my part, but I’m really trying to plan some of our meals around foods that we can find at our local farmers’ market.
Something else that I love about this… it’s such a great learning opportunity for the kids! The variety of fruits and vegetables that are on display, available to look at, touch, and sample, are amazing! My kids act like they are in a candy store. They have so much fun!
