But we had a real treat for lunch!! My preceptor and I met up with KELSEY for a lunch meeting of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Food Policy Council. This is a group of 100 or so community members – from farmers to land conservancy to the health dept to healthcare leaders – coming together to talk about food and its effects on the community. There were a selection of local farmers on a panel who spoke about some of the obstacles and struggles they face to get locally grown food to the public. It was very eye-opening and I wish I had time to elaborate on what they said, but I have to get back to work! Bottom line: BUY LOCAL PRODUCE!
The lunch was catered by Grateful Growers farm, a nearby farm that raises pork, ducks and grows produce in the best way possible.
Here’s the menu, flushed out with some other farms’ produce to 🙂
The sandwich was delicious! Pork, spinach and goat cheese with a veggie relish. Plus butternut squash bisque.
I ate about 75% of my sandwich (left some of the fluffy bread) and all my soup!
Had about half of this awesome brownie, but practiced some portion control 😉
Real Food you can feel good about!
Excited that it’s sunny and warm outside and for yoga at 5:30 and because we have a house showing scheduled for tomorrow!!!
