Guilty Pleasure

Should I feel guilty because there are aspects of  'simpler' times that I want (less processed food without chemicals added in) but I don't want to give up all of the modern day conveniences?

Can we eat healthy in a responsible way. A way that is reasonable both in time and money and protects the environment too?

What can we do?? Here is one idea I have.  Try to think about one of these next time you eat or buy food.
  • Buy food that is as close to you as possible (those oranges from Brazil??? too far away)
  • Eat what is in season (I know it is tough during the winter but try)
  • Support your local farmer (Farmer's Market or CSA)
Eating or buying food locally saves fossil fuel.  It takes alot to ship those strawberries to New York from California. 

Do your part by knowing how long your food traveled before you ate it.  Besides, the fresher you eat something the better it tastes and the better it is for you!
