Share the Love & Coming up in Kansas City: 7/29/11

It’s Friday!! Last Friday I was out of town and wasn’t able to get a Share the Love post up, so I was very excited to be able to this week. Have a great Friday, everyone, and enjoy!

{Coming up in KC}

  • BADSEED: It’s Friday, don’t forget to head out to BADSEED farmer’s market tonight for awesome produce! We were out of town last week, and didn’t make it the week before so we’re excited to be able to go tonight.
  • Farm Aid 2011: Farm Aid is in Kansas City this year! It’s a yearly concert and fundraiser headed by board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews, all about keeping local farmers on their land, and teaching people about The Good Food Movement. It will be at the LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kansas on August 13. Not only that, but it features HOMEGROWN concessions, featuring local, organic or family farm-sourced ingredients. Doesn’t that sound awesome? Yes! I was invited to attend Farm Aid as media and cover it on Lesley Lifting Life, and I would so love to be there! Unfortunately, I think we may be out of town that weekend. But it sounds like an awesome event, and I highly suggest checking it out if you’re in the KC area.

  • Meals & Moves: I had to include Janetha from Meals & Moves this week because of The Great Fundraising Act that occurred this past Monday. Most blog readers are probably familiar with it, but if you’re not, a live auction and bake sale was held on Monday, organized by Janetha, to raise money for fellow blogger, Susan, who was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and hit with some hefty bills. This live one-day online auction raised over $26,000! Amazing! One reason I love being apart of this blogging community.

  • Maria Makes Muffins: I love Maria’s blog! She’s always sharing delicious “clean” recipes with beautiful pictures. And isn’t her blog design just too cute? She shared a homemade vanilla extract a little while back, and I thought it was a perfect example of her wonderful blog.


  • Choosing Raw: It’s no secret, I’m sure you’ve noticed we’ve been making a lot more raw foods lately. It’s a lot of fun! That’s where Gena’s blog comes in. She has a lot of good raw recipes that look delicious! Most recently, I love the looks for her Hemp Pesto Recipe in which she shares multiple recipes incorporating hemp seeds. Love it!
