Visited a Farmer's Market Lately???

With an abundance of Farmers' Markets around town (San Diego) there really should be no excuse not to get to one. Time constraint?  Well, please make time -- your body will thank you and so will your brain! Not enough money?  Now there are options, for instance: this southeastern San Diego market accepts EBT where The Fresh Fund matches up to $20.00/month also for CalFresh, WIC (Women, Infants & Children) and SSI (supplemental security income) participants. Need a ride?  Buddy up with a friend, after all you want your friends to be healthy too! Don't let excuses keep you away....

Did you know? 
If you didn’t know yet: fruit is the ultimate brain fuel. Fruit has a positive effect on our brains. The way this works still has to be found out and many scientists are looking into it as we speak. What we do know is that if you consume fruit effectively, your brains can recall information faster and more easily. This is very useful information for people who are preparing for an exam. Students that  want to go to this page immediately go to: improve your exam results with fruit.

Vegetables:  Brightly colored vegetables are the cornerstone of a healthy diet. However, only 6 percent of Americans actually eat the recommended amount of veggies each day, which is approximately 2.5 cups, according to the health campaign Fruits & Veggies More Matters. The average American eats only 57 percent of the recommended amount. However, eating plenty of vegetables can help boost your brain's health.
