Hopefully, planning a seasonal wedding menu will inspire you and your Mr. to start your new life together on a path toward health for each other, your community and the environment. Get started by joining a food coop, participating in a CSA program (Community-Supported Agriculture), shopping at your local farmer’s market or just making the switch to a couple of USDA Organic products at the local supermarket.
To learn what grows in your area and how to support sustainable agriculture, visit Local Harvest. Even those on a budget can find ways to include local produce (and fruit if you live near California or Florida). When you know where your food comes from and how its grown, you’ll enhance your connection to your home, your bodies and, ultimately, to each other. (Everyone knows a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach!)
Finish your menu with a dessert that recalls the sweetness of love. Liz Neumark recommends this Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream and Chocolate Sauce which, luckily, can be enjoyed year-round.
