This weekend we went to the Winter Park Farmer's Market. It seemed a little smaller than normal, but there were a couple of interesting additions. Raw Milk/Cheese and Amish Butter/Free Range Eggs stands. We asked about the Raw Milk, but you have to pre-order. It just goes so fast. The health benefits are just wonderful, so I hear (I mean for your pets...wink.) A friend of mine at work swears it's cleared her heartburn (uhh I mean her dog's heartburn), and her husband has noticed that his IBS has been well improved since drinking it (ooh I mean their cat's IBS). There's some immediate proof to me! See here: http://www.raw-milk-facts.com/raw_milk_health_benefits.html. Yes, it's ILLEGAL. What! Yes, it's labeled as for pet consumption only. It is all natural and richer than milk at the store.
So then we headed over to the Amish Butter and Fresh Real Free Range Eggs stand. We ran into an older man waiting for his wife that was talking to the woman behind the stand. The older man proceeded to tell us how wonderful the eggs were. Only 3% cholesterol compared to the grocery store eggs at 20%. Hmm...and how his wife was diagnosed (she does not say she has it) with lung cancer and that they are trying the natural life to try to cure it. He said that the food they give us is causing cancer!

And so...there you go...grassroots. Others think like I do! Others are finding out the benefits of natural foods and stopping eating processed foods! It's amazing! It's happening more and more. It's not just a few of us talking about it. More and more of us should know about it!
We've been trying to eat healthier and more naturally because we believe that it's so beneficial to our bodies. And that it's unhealthy to keep eating processed foods and hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup (and all those other man-made unnatural things).
Oh that man told me about a farm 2 hrs away (from Orlando) that sells farm raised beef. Which again grass-fed, not corn-fed, so it's healthier. See health benefits of grass-fed beef here: . Also, here's the link to the farm if you are local: .
Since I didn't mention above, see benefits of raw butter here: www.bodyecology.com/07/07/05/benefits_of_real_butter.php.
As you can see, being natural and healthy, does not mean you have to turn completely vegetarian! Let's move toward natural and healthy!!!!
