    Farm to Fit Holiday Schedule

    Happy Friday Farm to Fit fans, friends and followers!

    We will be adjusting our holiday schedule for the last few weeks of December to allow time for family, friends, and holiday treats. We will be delivering 4 days of meals on the Tuesday the 20th and 4 more days of meals on Tuesday the 27th.  After this we are back to our regular schedule on January 3rd, just in time for new year’s resolutions and holiday candy detox!

    If you would like to order for these weeks, please email or call us directly and we will charge your card on file for the 4 days of meals* (rather than your usual 5 or 7 days).  If you are on recurring billing, we will automatically adjust your billing charges for these two weeks.  If you’d like to make other arrangements, let us know.

    One last thing: After January 1st we will be asking all of our clients to sign up for recurring billing.  This is easy to start and easy to cancel or suspend, all we need is 48 hours notice.  More to come on that later.
    Let us know if you have any questions.
    Thank you and Happy Holidays!
    Your Farm to Fit Friends

    Farm to Forty: Weighing In

    For years now, when I am dieting, I weigh in once a week. So the night before I have to get on the scale, I become very anxious.  It is subtle and I am not always aware but my subconscious is, and he becomes a wreck waiting to hear the news, imploring the world for good news but always expecting the worst.

    I also do the useless and bad habit of not drinking water after about 6pm the night

    before (my thought is, “ then I can’t blame it on water.”)  I do not think it is true, but it somehow displaces my anxiousness into action but not acting. Oh, my brain when it is on a diet!!! Well that is my confession of the week.

    Now the news, after a night of restless sleep (half due to the weighing in and half the new business) with my stomach in knots, I went to the scale and it was good to me, it said I lost 2 pounds!

    Right on track. If I keep it up, I am where I need to be for the Goal. 7 down 18 to go!

    Farm to Fit ’til I am FORTY!

    Farm to Forty: A Thankful Post-Thanksgiving

    So week two scale extravaganza was not as painful of an affair  as it could have been …but no real rejoicing happened either.

    Farm to Fit's Salmon and Succotash! I maintained at the exact weight after my four pound drop the first week. But after my 2 1/2 day skid on Thanksgiving I do feel lucky. I’m hoping that next week I can be back in the losers column.  I am becoming more and more aware that the Christmas Holidays are around the corner!

    I really am enjoying the food; the Winter Squash Succatash on the Salmon- ” forget about it!”

    I hope everyone else is on track with their goals and we would love some feedback on the food.  What are your favorites?? What are your bummers?

    Be talking to you soon!

    A mid-week check in and a van.

    Hello Farm to Fit family! G. Scott here.

    The Farm to Fit delivery van in its naked, unadorned glory.So not only am I stressed about getting on the scale tomorrow, I bought this big ol’ Step Van (because nothing screams new business like a truck or van!). It is shiny and white and beautiful, like a perfect canvas for some punk tagger to come and mess up.

    I’m going to get it painted and put our logo on the side soon, but for now it’s just out there in the NE all alone and naked, ready to be vandalized. My parents or school never prepared me for this strange new worry/stress in my life!

    It makes me want to eat ice cream.

    G. Scott

    ps. Does anyone know a fenced in parking lot that I could part (for cheap) in NE? Have a great weekend!

    Farm to Forty: G’s Progress

    One of our Farm to Fit Salads featuring bay shrimp, beets and more!

    I let the spirit of Thanksgiving indulgence take over me and cheated for the next few days. So now my goal for the next week is to clean up the mess and hopefully maintain the four pounds and maybe lose one or two, but let’s be honest I would not be surprised if like my indulgence I find the scale going in the wrong direction.

    I am enjoying the food a lot, but I am aware we need to work on our salad dressings.

    I hope you had a great Holiday!

    Putting my mouth where my money is.

    Howdy Farm to Fit followers!

    This is G. Scott (one of the co-founders of Farm to Fit) coming to you so I can be held publicly accountable for the next three months.  You see, in three months I turn (gulp) Forty!!

    Therefore I am going put my mouth where my money is and eat Farm to Fit and prove to myself and the world that it works.  My goal is to lose 25 pounds. That is about 2 pounds a week.  Dre and I created this business for this very reason and now I am going to use it.

    These past months of tasting all the food and working crazy hours, I have become nice and plump (just in time to be carved for Thanksgiving dinner.)

    As I look Forty in the mirror, I know I have no more excuses (even though the holidays are a good one!) So my plan is to eat the 1600 calories meals, 7 days a week, do at least 5 days of cardio, and minimize my alcohol intake.  

    Let’s be honest! I know for me to survive I will have one cheat meal a week.

    I’ll weigh in once a week, measure my arms, chest, hips, and thighs and Ill keep you posted how it goes.

    So peeps, I’ll check in soon to tell you how my “Farm to Fit till I am Forty” is going.

    Thanks!

    Meet Farm to Fit.


    by G. Scott Brown

    At Farm to Fit we believe healthy eating should be delicious, joyous and fresh every time.







    So who are we?

    That guy on the left is Chef Kevin Sandri of Garden State fame. His reputation pretty much speaks for itself- winner of the Oregonian’s Diner Guide “Standout Italian Restaurant,” Judges’ Choice
    award at Willamette Week’s 2010 Eat Mobile event. Kevin appeared on television with Good Morning America and the Cooking Channel’’s “Eat Street” and has had recipes published in magazines such as Sunset and Cooking
    Light. Don’t let the accolades fool you though- this guy is down to earth, knows what tastes good and is hilarious to boot.

    Those other two? That’s married couple Dre and G. Scott, co-founders of Farm to Fit and actors by trade- who else knows the pressures of being fit and keeping your body healthy better than actors? For these two, weight loss and the pursuit of healthy lifestyles has led to a realization: calorie-based dieting can work. The trick is that the food must be fresh, local and taste great!
