On today's episode I talk about Harvet Eating on vaction. When we travel the kid's nutrition is paramount. We always search out local farmers markets and buy fresh local produce, bread, cheese, meat, seafood etc. Whatever looks fresh and is local we buy, that way we can cook and eat real foods while away. This also means having to bring cookware, knifes cutting boards etc. so real meals can be prepared. I also briefly discuss my new, ol, Troy built Horse tiller.
