Getting healthy happens one meal at a time. Annette Reeder, author of Treasures of Healthy Living, has a lot of great tips on improving what we eat. One of her favorite tips is to shop at your local farmers market. The fruits and vegetables they sell are grown locally and their prices are usually lower than at your grocery store. Plus, their produce is picked at the peak of the season so they contain more nutrients. Shopping at the farmers market also benefits your local farmer and strengthens your local community.
Those are lots of positives, right? Well, here is an extra benefit. If you buy a copy of one of Annette's books and post a picture of yourself with it at your local farmer's market, you could win a Bosch mixer worth over $400! Other prizes include a a $400 cancer screening, a $25 Outback gift card, River's Song by Melody Carlson, and more.
Here are the simple steps to enter the contest:
▪ Buy a copy of one of Annette's books (Treasures of Healthy Living, Treasures of Health Nutrition Manual or the Healthy Treasures Cookbook) and take a picture of yourself with the book at your favorite farmer's market
▪ Like the Designed Healthy Living Facebook page.
▪ Post your picture on the Designed Healthy Living Facebook page along with the location of your famers market.
That is it! If you are the first in your state to enter the contest your name will be put in the drawing 10 times. You can enter as many times as you wish - just go to a different farmers market. If you don't have a farmers market in your area, be creative. There is no limit to the number of times you can enter, but you must post a photo from a different farmers market for each entry.
The contest will begin in May 1, 2012 and ends on May 31, 2012.
