Eating vegetables and fruits provides many health benefits, such as providing nutrients, help maintaining healthy blood pressure, reducing risk of some chronic diseases, reducing cholesterol levels, lowering risk of heart disease, and protecting against infections. As we know, it can be more challenging to eat healthy during winter, so it is important to make a contentious effort. One way to get more healthy vegetables and fruits in our diet is to participate in a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Two area CSA’s provided us information about their programs (details below), but you can find out about other CSA’s in your local community through a quick internet search or word-of-mouth.
