Fresh from the Farm: Shifting Perspective

Posted by Rebecca Bilodeau on Feb 20, 2017 9:15:53 AM

All the snow we've gotten in the last couple of weeks has us looking at things in a new way. Snow-covered streets seem suddenly different, and the landscape keeps shifting as the snow melts, revealing things that were buried. As snow piled up, or got packed down into slippery ice, reliable paths suddenly seem strange. This shift in perspective can help us recognize what we usually take for granted, and look at them in a new light. This week, we are looking at things sideways and reconsidering familiar foods.

Fresh from the Farm: Staying Healthy

Posted by Rebecca Bilodeau on Feb 6, 2017 8:48:20 AM

The days are getting longer, hinting at warmth and sunlight to come. In the meantime, however, we have many long cold days ahead of us, and are not quite through cold and flu season. Stay healthy for the remainder of the winter by getting enough rest, washing your hands thoroughly and by eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. Nutritionists often recommend “eating the rainbow” to ensure that you are maintaining a healthy diet. The wide spectrum of color found in your Boston Organics box this week is sure to help you meet that goal and nourish you throughout the season, and the year.
