For John Thompson, it all began with the desire to help people of all sizes and fitness levels live a healthier lifestyle. As a nationally certified personal trainer and fitness coach, John used his know-how to devise the high-intensity Ultimate 30-Minute Workout Experience, an effective, time-efficient workout that targets the whole body. Held 13 times a week, each boot-camp-like session combines cardio, weights, and abdominal exercises to boost sluggish metabolisms, tone muscles, and evict stress from tense bodies. To bolster the workout regimen, John and his fit-savvy crew craft custom nutrition programs, providing an easy-to-follow eating blueprint that helps clients establish healthy noshing habits and fit back into their high-school swim goggles.

Healthy eating isn't bland or boring when Grace & Jewel's is involved. That's because the company keeps customers' kitchens stocked with plump berries, creamy avocados, savory beets, and other fresh treats that grow from the earth. The company seeks out crisp, flavorful produce both in and out out of season, fulfilling orders year-round. Organic produce and produce intended for juicing are also available.
Under the direction of area farmer Bob McKellar, Family Farm Fresh's conglomeration of local farmers unites to dole out their fresh fruits, veggies, and herbs via a system of community-supported agriculture. This program links consumers to local farmers instead of farmers who till soil and sing lullabies to their rutabagas up to 1,500 miles away from their point of consumption. Most of Family Farm Fresh's produce travels only about 20 miles, making toxic preservatives unnecessary and channeling customers' funds back into their own community.
The flavorful cornucopias, available in one of four sizes, are deposited directly on doorsteps once a week brimming with the customer's selection of seasonal bounty. Basic baskets come with carrots, potatoes, and other traditional fruits and veggies, whereas standard baskets encompass a similar selection of the aforementioned edibles with the occasional unique item, such as daikon radishes. Patrons can also opt for fruit- or veggie-only baskets and can permanently nix items that don't suit their tastes or the color scheme of their dinner china. Other grocery items, such as range-raised eggs and local honey, are also available to augment natural smorgasbords.
Country-style wooden chairs and a hodgepodge of art on the walls give Mainstreet Cafe a cozy, hometown atmosphere. The comfortable atmosphere is key, as staff at Mainstreet Cafe hopes its diners will come to eat all three meals and feed all four stomachs, with a menu that encompasses breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In the mornings, the griddle sizzles with eggs and pancake batter. Later in the day, guests can order hearty sandwiches and Black Angus burgers, steak dishes, or the café’s specialty german sausage and housemade zwieback.
