New York Apples: From Farm to Table
In just a few months, the perfect combination of sunlight, water, and love by dedicated farmers had transformed those beautiful white flower buds into one of America’s most beloved fruits. When I returned to to the Zingler Apple Farm in Kendall, NY this October, it was even more amazing and meaningful to see those beautiful trees ripe with fruit.

I've gotten to spend a lot of time on a small dairy farm in Upstate New York, one of the most beautiful regions in Upstate New York on the Finger Lakes.

Customizable Vegan Fruit, Nut & Seed Energy Bites
Last summer I was able to go on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Georgia with the National Peanut Board to learn how peanuts are produced and harvested. It was incredible to meet the farmers and to learn more about how peanuts are brought to us, from farm to table.
For everyday use, I am most partial to peanut butter because it is the most affordable nut butter and accessible to everyone at just about every grocery store.

Every year, the first thing we plant in our garden, The Millennial Garden, are peas. They are one of the few crops we can plant early because of their ability to withstand a late season frost.That also means they are one of the first crops ready for harvest, which is always exciting, and delicious. Picking fresh peas from the vine brings me such sweet memories of my childhood, and I hope my son will remember the same when he grows older.
