How Much Time Is Wasted By Dieting?

I started going to my local Farmer’s markets last year and food shopping is now no longer a chore, it’s an enjoyable experience that I look forward to. I am fortunate to live on the Sunshine Coast where there is access to a few farmers markets in the local area.

It’s relaxing to do your shopping outdoors and you can make a social excursion of it! Continue reading Top Ten Reasons To Shop At Farmers’ Markets
