Here’s some ways to be heart healthy and your heart will be happy.(1)Read More

Vibrant, colorful fruits and vegetables around, including local bakeries, tons of food trucks, wine, beer, and kombucha tasting!

I so wish I had the time to go every week. That was my original summer plan but now guess what….summer’s halfway over!
I love walking up and down the street of produce next to Menchie’s, then around the corner towards the city of food trucks. All the amazing smells and sounds; yes there’s even a live “concert” every Thursday as people meander!Read More
