Perfect Fall Day | Weekend

This past weekend my family and I went apple picking at a local U-Pick a few minutes outside of the city (MacKay Apple Orchard, for those wondering). I fully endorse buying fresh local fruit (those who know me, will concur) so when it come to U-Picks I am all for them! And thank the wonders of the universe that I live in such a BEAUTIFUL country, especially in the Fall! Everywhere you look could be made into a painting.

To me it is very important to support our local farms and shops, who else would keep them in business? Also, it is much more beneficial to buy local because the less time the item spends getting from the farm to you the more nutrients are available for your body to use. After reading an eye opening article on Food Matters titled: Are you eating one year old apples? I realized that buying grocery store apples just isn't nutritionally acceptable anymore. I'm eating with a plan guys, I want to get as much of the healthy nutrients as possible from ALL of my foods! Maybe even live forever (haha!)

So here are a few photos to document how awesome buying local is and how much fun you can have gathering healthy foods!
