CSA: Something Good Organics

If you have never experienced the incredible joys that come with picking up your CSA box each week then I can honestly say you have been missing out ;) Really, picking up my box of such abundant freshly harvested produce each week is literally one of the more favorite parts of my week! It's also like personal shopping, my produce already hand picked of what is the best, in season, and coming straight off the farm right now, come on moms, who doesn't want that? Who doesn't need that?!

I became very well acquainted with local farms in my days of working farmer's market while I was in nutrition school. And I honestly fell in love with Givens Farm and Something Good Organics, maybe because I also fell in love Carolyn Givens who runs the CSA program ;) Not only does the family take such great care of all the elements that go into organic farming but Carolyn herself takes such incredible care to what is chosen each week to go into your box. She consistently blows my mind with how thriving the produce looks and how delicious it tastes!

CSA, for those who don't know stands for Community Supported Agriculture, where you pay into the farm and you get a portion of what's coming off the farm each week. Your money goes directly to the farmer, no middle man here, and you get the freshest produce as it's not sitting in a grocery store for any amount of time you don't know about ;)

If you want the freshest, most economical, local and organic produce sign up here! Be sure you tell Carolyn about the 'Dani Deal' as she'll throw in some extra fruit for your first two weeks!

Carolyn also has a Farm Stand up in Buellton, such easy access, right off the freeway, on the edge of the farm at 9499 Santa Rosa Rd and it's simply glorious. If you live up north or are driving up the 101 be sure you stop by! You can also find Givens Farm at all of the local farmer's markets, but trust me, the CSA is where it's at :)

Everyone stay tuned the Happy Healthy Littles blog is starting this week!

Happy New Year

I have never been so blessed than by the families that I have worked with over the course of these last six years running Wholesome Practices. Getting to share the joy of your dreams coming true in conceiving, carrying and birthing your babies has been the greatest gift to me.

If you've been following my blog you know that this year has held a lot of changes for me, for all good reasons, and 2019 will only hold more. I have partnered up with Whitney Eves NTC in creating an online course-based platform that will host various 'packages' on specific topics with all the nutritional information you need. Of course we are starting Happy Healthy Littles with a Prenatal Package in the New Year, which will also have workouts by Beth Alexander, a pre and post natal fitness specialist. I could not be more thrilled to have created a way to give more women access to information regarding nutritional prenatal care.

Whitney and I have poured our hearts and souls into this Prenatal + Fitness Package and hope for many more packages to come in 2019. With the launch of this whole new venture I am no longer running Wholesome Practices as my private practice. But do not worry, I am still consulting and will still be available for those of you who have worked with me in these precious previous years. Not much changes there besides the name and the heart to reach woman on a much larger scale ;) This Wholesome Practices website will still run a blog with a new post here and there on what I am loving lately. I also invite you to follow the Happy Healthy Littles blog when it's launched.

I wish everyone the happiest and healthiest New Year, cheers to 2019 :)

p.s. please review my posts on Cold Care if your families are coming down with everything that's going around right now!
