Eating Omily: Is That a Challenge?? (Spoiler Alert: Yes.)

Happy Monday! I wanted to share this fun Farmers' Market challenge with you! If you've got an instagram, you could win prizes, but either way, you'll get a chance to discover new foods, and get more delicious nutrients into your life!
If you're just trying to get more veggies in your life, there's plenty of low-hanging fruit for you to enjoy (pun totally intended!): red apples, orange carrots, green...greens. You get the picture.

On the other hand, you can challenge yourself to try something new! I got sprouted adzuki beans as my red item for this week! I can't wait to give them a try!!

If you don't live in NYC, you can of course still spend the next month exploring the food rainbow...and maybe you can make up your own challenge by inviting your friends to participate! Share ideas, share recipes, and eat good food!

Are you stuck with grocery stores? Does trying to eat local feel like one big discouragement-fest? Let this challenge motivate you to scour your produce department: can you find something both red, and local this week?? If not, whats the closest place something red comes from? Are there local options in other colors? Take some notes so you can use that info later. Remember that local food will always be seasonal (at least in the ballpark, or else it will store well), so you don't even have to bother checking the country of origin label on those sad-looking strawberries.

Have fun, guys! And mention me on instagram so I see what you find! I'm @emily.hursh
