Say YES to Salads !

I was sitting in bed last night thinking ….. I really need to do a blog post , what should I write about ? And then BAM !Today I see this article is in my email in box. ( go ahead click on it and check it out )

Really? Wow! We promote eating fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy kids, planting gardens, eating local and on and on ! What I find really amazing is that I live in the Salad Bowl of the World!  Agriculture touches nearly every facet of Monterey County, from the lettuce in the fields to the businesses that support the farming community. (irrigation sales, tractor sales, cartons, packaging , fertilizers etc etc etc )  We are the hub of it all!

How can we expect folks across America to support healthy eating and salad bars in our schools when we can’t even do it ourselves?   What am I missing ?  Why do we have to make it so difficult ? What do you think? How would you handle this ? Eager to hear your thoughts
