Farmers Markets: Good For The Community, Great For Your Health!

Farmers markets are a wonderful way to find locally grown, nutritious and delicious foods.  A healthy, well-balanced diet is especially important in preventing cancer and a long-list of other diseases. Ensuring that you and your family are eating nutritious foods can put you on the road to optimal and long-lasting health. Not to mention, a healthy diet can combat heartburn and other Gastroesophageal Reflux Symptoms.

We were excited to read RefluxMD’s recent article “Try the farmers market to improve your GERD diet” and want to share their expert advice with all of you! (Check them out on Facebook!)

Take advantage of your local farmers markets! It is also a great way to get the entire family involved and to teach your children the importance of nutrition and suppotitg your local community.
