One of the most important steps we had to take in learning to become a person that lives above the wellness line was to change our eating habits.

Eating local and seasonal year round with old fashioned food preservation methods is a great way to do just that.

If you go blueberry picking or are finding a great deal at the local farmers market, freeze some to use in your smoothies and oatmeal throughout the year.

If you’re feeling a little more ambitious, consider doing some canning. Most vegetables can well and you can even make a batch or two of homemade tomato sauce and can.

The same principle works for freezing. What frozen fruits and vegetables to you end up using when you don’t have good fresh options at the grocery store?

Talk to farmers and other shoppers at your local farmers market and farms. Do a little research online, or pick up a food preservation book at your local library.
