The best grocery store should be in your backyard

The best food often comes from your own backyard. Home gardens and homesteading farms are less common these days but certainly sustained the thriving nations for centuries.

Consider this: anything at the grocery store you could conceivably produce in your own backyard (given the freedom of time and friendlier HOA by-laws) is probably what you should eat. I’ve never seen a Teddy Grahams bush or livestock that gives Gatorade when milked.

If you couldn’t grow it, shepherd it, milk it, or harvest it in your own backyard then maybe you shouldn’t eat it.

I can’t control the weather (yet).

One of the great things about living in Knoxville is our proximity to the Smoky Mountains. Since today was a beautiful day I took the opportunity to go get my exercise outside along Chestnut Top Trail. Since everyday isn’t going to be as beautiful as today and I can’t control the weather yet I need to have a plan for exercise on those cold, windy, hot, wet, or otherwise unpleasant days. A wellness facility like VitalSigns goes along way to guarantee you can exercise whenever the time is right.
