Food Day Omaha                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Mark Sunday, Oct. 21 on your calendars and get ready to Celebrate Food Day Omaha. As part of a nationwide effort to promote healthier diets, sustainable and organic farms and reduce hunger the Gretchen Swanson Center for Nutrition and the Omaha Farmer's Market have joined forces to help locals celebrate food. Stop by Aksarben Village to enjoy the farmers market, visit booths from area food-related organizations and check out a cooking demo or two. For more information, check out Food Day Omaha on facebook.

The End is Near                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               October marks the end of farmer's market season. Soon streets and parking lots all across the city will be free of fresh produce and grass-fed meat. Most markets are finished by October 21, so now is the time to stock up and store fresh, local produce and grass-fed proteins.

October Unprocessed                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      For those who need a challenge to get motivated the website eatingrules.com has a great one for October. It simple: make it the entire month without eating any processed foods. For tips, tools and to take the challenge along with 3,791 of your closest friends visit the website.
