Where you do your shopping is just as important as what you shop for, when it comes to choosing healthy NOURISHING foods. My mantra is this:
“Local Markets Before SuperMarkets”
When you choose foods that are grown locally, you’re not only doing something good for your body, you’re benefiting the planet’s environment (less of an environmental impact), supporting local farmers (remember, the farmers, no matter where they live, are responsible for the food we eat) and therefore you’re supporting your local economy.
We often think we can only eat local foods during the spring and summer months, but there are still ways to choose local in the fall and winter. Joining a local CSA is one of the best ways, or subscribe to a grocery delivery service that contracts with local farmers within a 50-100 mile radius (doortodoororganics.com is a great company that I’ve personally used).
Remember, “local markets before supermarkets” whenever possible to NOURISH your body, the environment, & the local economy! Win-Win-Win!
