A new year is upon us which means it’s time for a FRESH start. January is the time of year to whip out your chef’s knife, reach into our produce bin, and prepare a healthy meal which will give you the energy and clarity to reach all those new goals you have set for yourself. January is also the time of year when sourcing fresh, local veggies can be, well…. a bit challenging. Lucky for you, the Harbor District Market will now be offering fresh produce during the winter months thanks to Old Creek Produce.
Old Creek Produce is a small, no-spray farm based out of Greenville, NC. The operation is about 5 acres and grows fresh, seasonal produce such as microgreens, carrots, radishes, peppers, squash, eggplant, and more. When you visit the Old Creek Produce booth at the Harbor District Market, you can also find locally raised chicken and pork products.
Eating fresh, local food is a great way to reach a multitude of goals you may have set out for yourself, including weight loss, increased exercise (thanks to all that new energy), being more present with those around you, etc. As you set out to achieve all these new goals, remember that part of staying motivated is finding new wass to measure your progress. If your goal is to drop a few pounds by eating healthy, the scale shouldn’t be your only measuring tool. Physical progress can include more energy, better sleep, clothes fitting better, and exercising with greater ease. Progess can also be measured in your social life by receiving compliments from others, choosing a healthier entrée at a restaurant, and resisting those processed foods at the grocery store.
