Woodbury Thrives

Woodbury THRIVES is a community initiative aimed at improving the health of residents in the broadest of ways: physical health, spiritual and emotional well-­being and financial health. Events and services will help residents grow in health and financial literacy, improve healthy behaviors, and together promote Woodbury as a health and wellness community. The benefits will include healthier families, a more vibrant source of employees for economic development, and better access to services that help citizens adopt a lifestyle of health and well-being.

Why eat seasonally? Eating seasonal food means that you are purchasing and consuming food closest to it's harvest time. When we eat foods that are in season, they are likely being transported from local farms, instead of across multiple borders. Therefore, these foods are fresher, tastier and more nutrient dense.

Seasonal produce in Minnesota in early July includes:
Asparagus
Basil
Beets
Berries
Broccoli
Cabbage
Carrots
Zucchini
.... and MUCH more!

Check out seasonalfoodguide.org for more information of seasonally grown foods.
Thanks to Ways to Wellness for this helpful reminder, to Seasonal Food Guide for the list and to Lean Girls Club for the artwork.
