This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of SUBWAY® Restaurants. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have some wonderful news to spread and am eager to partner with SUBWAY® Restaurants to do so.
But first, as always, a brief (not so brief) story …
As you might recall, we had wanted to move out to the country for a long while. Live a simpler life, grow a lot of our own food, and have some chickens.
As you also might recall, two years ago we did just that. The ‘simpler life’ we are still working on – turns out growing our own food is tough, and raising chickens? Well, that’s not so simple either! Have you heard of bumblefoot? It’s a real thing – and far from what I had in mind when I set out for this simpler life. But we are getting the hang of it all. And we do love it so very much.
I noticed almost straight away a few things when we moved out to the country:
First, the quiet. It is so quiet out here. Even the noise from my crazy kids seems quieter out here. Or maybe it just dissipates better …
Second, the animals. There is a LOT of wildlife out here. It turns out, interestingly, there is a lot of wildlife I am not so comfortable with.
And third, the farmers that surround us (the real farmers) work unbelievably long hours and so, so hard.
Over the last two years we have gotten to know several of the farmers who live near us and I am continually amazed by their hard work, dedication, and passion for what they do.
That’s why I was so excited to be asked by SUBWAY® Restaurants to help them spread some pretty remarkable news. You can now enjoy your subs in a whole new way:
SUBWAY® Restaurants is partnering with Burnac Produce to bring locally grown produce to Ontario’s 1300 stores!
Now when we visit SUBWAY® Restaurants, at least those of us in Ontario, we will be supporting local farmers. We try very hard to buy local whenever possible, supporting our local economy and community, and I think it is fabulous that SUBWAY® Restaurants is doing this same thing.
I have always been careful with, and concerned about, our environment – even when I was very young. In fact, my parents were quite sure I would end up in a repurposed, wildflower painted bus somewhere in B.C.
While I’m not, at least not yet, I still care for our environment greatly. One other benefit of SUBWAY® Restaurants using locally grown produce is the reduction in emissions from transporting food. This contributes to sustainability and environmental responsibility.
Turns out you don’t need to live off the grid in a repurposed, wildflower painted bus to help the environment. You can just opt to support a locally owned business purchasing locally sourced produce.
Next time we are so busy with the preserving of our own food that I don’t have the time or energy to make dinner (and yes, I know how unbelievably ironic that is. But I also know that it happens very frequently. Real-life people – not as simple as I had envisioned!) I will feel good about visiting our local SUBWAY® Restaurant

Thank you so much for reading and helping to spread the news friends. I hope you are having a fabulous weekend. Be sure to pop back tomorrow so I can share a really neat science experiment with you! Here’s your clue – it has to do with a “V” and a fan ….
