Locavore Adventure

Submitted by

What a lovely sunny cool and breezy morning.  I started my day with a fabulous Yoga class at Cornerstone with @Balance4Life followed by a locavore adventure to the Doylestown Farmers Market.

What is a Lovavore?

A locavore is someone who is committed to eating food that is grown or produced within their local community or region.

While I am not a locavore 100% of the time,  I make a HUGE effort to buy and eat foods grown locally and to support restaurants that get their foods from local growers (i.e. Jules Thin Crust)  I am also growing my own garden, participate in a CSA and try to buy most of my foods from local growers and farmers in Bucks County.  It’s just an amazing feeling to know where your food comes from and to even meet the farmers that grow our local food with love.

My favorite find of the day at the Doylestown Farmers Market was the 100% whole grain flour from the Castle Valley Mill here in Doylestown, PA- Bucks County.

The Castle Valley Mill stone grinds the grains slwowly which keeps the flour cool and keeps all of the flavor, nutrition and texture in the product.

I just made some sweet muffins with the whole wheat flour and they were delicious.  Here is the recipe that Castle Valley Mill gave me this morning with the addition of flax-seed from me.
