Hi Susan
You can order a fresh turkey from whole foods if you like also would be a great time to order from your local butcher or super market .As far as fresh veggies I enjoy getting fresh from Kings farm on rt 228 off of rt. 8. Remember all the great produce in season apples, arugula, beets, bok choy,broccoli, carrots,eggplant,garlic,mustard greens,kale,radishes,spinach,turnips,sun chokes,sweet potatoes & winter squash.
I will get back to u about wines all state stores do carry organic wines.
 
To much rind in your cranberries makes them tart.
hope this helps

I would like to know where I can get a FRESH turkey and pork sausage.

Some local grown veggies I am looking for (prefer from a local farm):

Cauliflower
Potatoes
Sweet Potatoe

I am always looking for a good organic red and white wine.



Prepartion ideas:

I refuse to do canned cranberries!!! It also took me years to wean my family off them. Fresh cranberries can be very tart. I add the oranges to my cranberries to naturally sweeten them. I cook them in the juice I squeeze, and also use the rinds! The rinds add color for preparation.


Things I am trying this year:

I started drying my bread to make my own bread crumbs for my stuffing. I like the idea that I can use whole grain breads, and I will be getting that into my stuffing instead of what ever bread they use in the packaged stuffing mix.


BTW, my fresh herbs are still growing strong, and I have also dried some i f anyone needs organic herbs.

Subject: [wholefood-161] The Thanksgiving "100 Mile" forum will begin!

Many of us have taking the steps towards a healthy lifestyle throughout the year. As the holidays approach, it is very easy to throw all our efforts out the window for convenience. Having a "whole food" thanksgiving is not only healthier for you and your family, but it is more rewarding. I always felt that having a whole food thanksgiving was more traditional to the thanksgivings that our fore fathers experienced. To have a whole food thanksgiving does not require more time, but more planning. This planning are tiny steps that can be done throughout the year. An example of this is, I froze many of the flowers and vegetables that were grown in the Victory Garden by the members of this group. I will be using these in my Thanksgiving meal.

At this time I am encouraging the 100 mile challenge! Buying your food within a 100 mile radius not only gets you fresher foods, but it also gives you more whole food options with les s preservatives. It also helps support your local farmers, and reduces your carbon imprint on the earth.

I am also encourage everyone to post their comments and ideas to begin a forum that all the members can benefit from. At this time, please post the following:




Locations where whole foods items that would be used for thanksgiving. Try to think beyond Whole Foods food market.
  • Sales on whole food items. Is there a local farm that has an over stock?
  • Ideas on preparing some whole food items that will replace the packaged or prepared items. How are you making your stuffing, cranberries, or mashed potatoes?




  • I am looking to sharing my ideas, and hearing of other ideas that will improve my thanksgiving towards a whole food thanksgiving.
