What I've learned so-far, and some stuff I knew already!

I want to share a little bit about the resources I am finding for local and whole foods.  This will be a continuing post as I keep hearing of other resources.  I will share resources I already know and whenever possible I will provide a link.  Find this post again on the right side bar.  If you know of any sources I am missing, or if you find a broken link, let me know!!
