Take a Veggie Vacation with FLF&LR and Shelly Rose of Pure Roots Nutrition!
by Katie Hoffman
Shelly Rose loves helping people find their way to good health. That journey begins with tasty, healthy food like the glorious abundance of veggies found on the Fall Line Farms and Local Roots buying page right now. Throw in a little exercise and a good night's sleep, and you've got a recipe for better living! We're excited to be collaborating with Shelly to help get our amazing assortment of veggies into the hands of her clients--and she's offering our members a 10% discount on her new Veggie Vacation Class! (Details and registration below.)
Veggie Vacation class runs from July 15 to August 15, 2021. Don't worry if you're not ready to give up sugar or sweets or other kinds of foods. This is a non-restrictive class full of great ideas for introducing more veggies into your daily diet. The hope is that, armed with the recipes and information that Shelly give you during the class, you'll begin to replace some of the less nutritious elements of your diet with delicious, colorful, healthy vegetables.
On her Veggie Vacation page, Shelly reminds us that "Eating a plant-centric diet is the foundation for thriving. It’s important to our quality of life right now and for healthy aging. Most Americans are on a trajectory of chronic disease due to poor nutrition and lifestyle habits — with results from these habits showing up 10-20 years later when it’s much harder to reverse. But did you know that we can actively minimize our risks of heart, lung, and kidney diseases, Type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, stroke, and neuro degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s simply by eating more colorful veggies and crowding out the junk?"
We know she's right!
Since 2008, Fall Line Farms and Local Roots has been helping small farms and small food businesses thrive all across Central Virginia. Since 2011, when Shelly founded Pure Roots Nutrition, she's been helping people learn how to take better care of themselves by eating just the kinds of things that are available on our market. We thought it was time to team up for the benefit of both communities!
FLF&LR members will enjoy a 10% discount when they sign up for this class--and they'll also learn new ways to use their market hauls to enhance their health and their enjoyment of the locally grown produce available on our pages.

By the way, there's another reason why we love what Shelly does. Part of the ticket sales from this class go to @world_up_ , funding mobile food pantries in Richmond, VA this summer!
