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 less 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.
