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)
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!
