Washington DC Farmers' Market and A Delicious Salad | WholeLifestyleNutrition.com

Welcome to Washington, D.C.    The farmers’ markets in D.C. are springing to life.  Come May, there is a farmers’ market on almost everyday of the week, which means fewer visits to the grocery store.  Sometimes, I go to the farmers’ market with a specific idea in mind; other times,  I just go to see what’s there and create meals from what I find.   Why Shop at a Farmers’ Market?   I love going to a farmers’ market and…

About Rhonda Cain

Working in health care for over 17 years, I thought I had always lived a fairly healthy lifestyle. Almost 3 years ago I embarked on a journey and soon realized everything I had been taught to better health was actually the culprit of many of my problems. In the process of changing to eating whole, organic foods, researching how it effect our lives, my eyes were opened to "green living". I began to venture out in my great city, Kansas City, which I have lived in for over 20 years, and have met some amazing people setting the pace for a local movement in the food and environment awareness scene. My goal is to educate people "living green" can be much more than recycling cans and paper; it can lead to good eats and a healthier lifestyle.
