Two years ago I was very sick. I barely had the strength to stand up and it was getting harder and harder to catch my breath. After hospitalization, I knew my illness was centered on my diet. My diet had been the traditional Fat-Free diet. I knew I had to start eating fresh food – food I would grow in a garden but my green thumb wasn’t any stronger than the rest of me. I started in the Grocery store produce then on to the Health Food Store and finally I found the local Farmer’s Market.
