  • Reflection Question

    What is one food choice that you make, or could make, that would do more good and less harm?

    A food choice that would do more good than harm is buying more vegetables and less candy and soda.
  • Reflection Question
    Health Know My health
    How do you deal with the physical and emotional stress of the big problems we face? How can you help others cope?

    I sometimes talk to people about it and I try to talk to others about their stress. Doing things I like also relieves stress.

    Canning and pickling food is a great way to have delicious summer fruits and vegetables all year round. Just make sure to follow the canning and pickling guidelines from the USDA. What are some foods that you would like to preserve and enjoy later in the year?

    Peaches would be good to preserve to make a peach cobbler. A lot of other fruits and vegetables would be good too.

    Some foods are much better local even though you can get food from anywhere. We need to support local farmers and then they will give back to the community.
