If You Haven't Been Listening, You've Been Missing...
All sorts of fun, interesting, informative content has been aired on Food for Thought over the last several months. Here are just a few links which we've mentioned.
All our listeners know we are big fans of local food and supporting local farmers. We interviewed Anna Barnes from our local CSA. She explained what a CSA is, what makes our local CSA special, and how you can buy a share (2010 shares are still available!).
Just because it is cold outside doesn't mean you need to throw those kitchen scraps away. Keep them working for you and keep them out of the landfills. Some tips on winter composting can be found here and here.
As much as I prefer to get nutrition through whole foods, I suggest people (veg or not) check out information on supplementing with vitamin D. If you are vegetarian or vegan, you want to look for D2 since it is plant-based (D3 is from animal sources). D is especially important in the winter months when one lives as far north as we do or for people who avoid or lack sun exposure.

Smile Politely is a wonderful local resource and online magazine. Often, they have articles about local food, food production, and restaurants. Now they have a new contributor with tips on eating vegan in C-U.
As always, we welcome your input. Let us know what you like, what you don't like, questions, comments, people you would like to hear us interview, topics you would like us to cover, etc. We love hearing from you!
