Excellent nutrition is the key foundation for a healthy pregnancy – and beyond! Fortunately for us, fresh and local produce, eggs and meat from family farms and co-ops are abundant in our area and it’s a wonderful way to provide yourself and your family with better nutrition! Not only that, but they often offer great deals that will save you money on your grocery bills! Start thinking outside the grocery store for ways to improve your diet. Most of these places also offer recipes online to help you learn to cook with foods that may be new to you.
