Today I had the opportunity to sit down with Allyson, the founder and farmer at Full Heart Farm. Full Heart Farm is a beautiful, sustainable farm in Ledyard, CT that uses the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model to provide healthy farm-fresh food to members and local restaurants. Community supported agriculture describes a system where people pay a farmer in the spring to have a share in the harvest which means they receive a bag of fresh-picked vegetables each week. Allyson loves her work and her connection with members. She said “there is nothing more important to us than sharing
Amelia Lord is a brilliant chef who provides a combination of nutritional knowledge with an ability to create food that makes people look forward to savoring every bite. Amelia inspires me with her creativity. I first saw her teach a class about packing healthy lunches and she shared ideas about making delicious and beautiful vegetables for adults and children that changed my lunches forever. I do a lot of talking and thinking about ways for myself and my patients to eat more vegetables but usually that’s with things like chopping onions and freezing them or replacing any rice or pasta

In an ideal world, I would go to the farmer’s market every week to buy fresh, locally sourced organic vegetables. In reality, I get very busy on the weekends so getting to the farmer’s market is more of a special trip instead of a routine. This is where Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares come in. When you buy a CSA share, you play a flat rate for the season and your local farmer supplies you with a large box of fresh veggies each week. There are farms that deliver CSA shares to your home while others have a weekly pickup
It is easy to use weather as a reason for letting physical activity fall by the wayside. I find that the same people who say they can not exercise because it is too cold, often find themselves saying that they cannot exercise because it’s too hot only one month later. So unless we want to limit our physical activity to one month out of the year, we need to find ways to bring physical activity indoors or find activities that we enjoy during each season. Here are some of my favorite resources for exercise routines that you can do indoors
Based on the title of this article, you may be expecting me to suggest some kind of liver cleanse or detox supplement, but at Third Stone Health, we do not use those types of detox programs. We often suggest more of a “diet reset” which may be spending a week eating only whole foods like vegetables and chicken or fish or doing the Whole 30 whole foods program. Many of the detox supplements that are out there do little besides causing a laxative effect which will make your weight go down but will not benefit you in any long-term way.
