Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

Here's the deal. I'm an agrarian in my heart, but I've been pursuing dead end paths in the "real world" for so long now that I've almost completely lost touch with an agrarian lifestyle.  Other than the farm dreams I have running through my head I'm not connected to that life at all. Worse yet, I don't even know where to start.

I try to patronize my local farmer's market each week, but I end up buying some strange assortment of veggies and meat that don't really go together and usually end up going bad in my refrigerator while I eat trashy bar food shipped in by Sysco and cooked in a fry-o-lator.  I think I may have an eating problem

I feel like I'm hopelessly addicted to the mindless eating that goes hand in hand with processed, pre-fab food and I want to get off that train. Where do I start?

Make a meal plan and stick to it.

Look around online for 7-8 entree and side dish recipes that sound good, print them, and make a grocery list of the ingredients you need. Use a calendar or your smart phone organizer function to decide what you'll be making for dinner each day so you can thaw/prepare anything you can the night before.

Thanks Carrie-

A meal plan sounds like a good way to start. Making lists is my least favorite thing in the world, but I suppose this would be a worthwhile place to engage in the activity. Any great recipe suggestions?
