The Switch to Locally Grown Food
My biggest goal for this year is to make a shift in my eating to more locally raised and locally grown food. Over the past several years, my beliefs have been greatly impacted by documentaries and books, most recently The Omnivore’s Dilemna – which has since changed my life. I realized that in order to eat as far in alignment with my beliefs as possible, much of my diet needs to become more localized. I am making strides to become more reliant on my local neighbors and farmers as opposed to “the man” – and have put together some tips below for you if you would like to do the same.
As always, I am trying to be as thrifty as possible through this transition. Locally grown and raised food is likely to be a little bit more expensive than your typical grocery store. However, you may consider your investment in food an investment in your health – this is how I see it.
