“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
With the first week of the new year coming to a close, I hope you are feeling good about your resolutions for 2013.  If healthy eating is first and foremost on your new to do list, may I suggest signing up for the 2013 Inverbrook Farm CSA season. There is no better incentive for adding fresh local vegetables to your diet than to make the financial commitment now for a growing season's supply of vegetables.  Considering the CSA pick does not start until June, this up front fee will help you keep your goal long into the year. As a reward, the cost of a 2013 CSA share will be discounted $50 until January 31st. If you need a pictorial incentive for joining the CSA- a visual taste of the season yet to come-check out this facebook album of vegetables from the 2012 CSA season.   Perhaps these great seasonal healthy recipes from Food52 will inspire a healthy change in diet.

Along with the chance for a new start, one of my favorite aspects of transitioning from one year to another is that it provides an opportune moment to look both forward and reflect on the past. Its always enlightening to read about past and future food/health trends.  Below I have complied a list of links that further explore this subject.  I find it especially heartening that the interest in local, artisanal food as well as a push to increase the consumption of fruits and vegetables--seems stronger than ever. Enjoy the links and best wishes for the New Year.
