The DZ Farm Meet the Chefs Event took place this past Sunday, October 12th, and I had the pleasure of attending on behalf of Saratoga.com.
After reviewing the invitation, I had a good idea of what to expect when I arrived at the farm, but reality blew out my prior expectations. The beauty of the property was completely overwhelming at first, initially making you forget where you were.

In the age of the internet, people these days are becoming increasingly aware of "miracle" cures for everything under the sun--many of them natural remedies--because we'd rather practice self care than schedule a doctor visit over every little thing.
Wouldn't it be great if your body was strong and healthy enough that the common cold, allergies, back pain, headaches and the effects of aging couldn't ail you? That is the goal of self care. Your journey toward optimum health includes nourishing your body with local, whole foods, detoxifying and treating your body with holistic medicine and freeing your mind and spirit through movement and through stillness.
But how do you know what you're doing, really? There are so many "natural" products, potions and lotions screaming at us from the shelves and being pushed by friends who sell this or that. Unless you're an expert, it can be difficult to decipher between trusted information and shoddy advice when it comes to self care. Trial and error can sometimes work, but wouldn't it be great to have a strong foundation and some guidance as you continue along your self care journey?
