Think Globally, Eat Locally

Today's Inspiration

Making a commitment to shop, buy, and eat locally is a very important way of creating positive change.

We all know that our planet needs our help right now, but we often feel unsure about what to do, where to make an effort, and what will really help. The good news is that we can heal the planet on a daily basis simply by buying and eating food that is grown locally. Food that has been transported long distances doesn't contain much life force by the time it gets to your kitchen. Making a commitment to shop, buy, and eat locally is not only a very important part of creating positive change, it can also be delicious fun.

One of the best places to begin the adventure of eating locally is a farmer's market. Stalls brim with fresh fruits and vegetables grown on nearby farms. Not only is this good for the environment, it's good for the farmers since they benefit from selling directly to the consumer. The consumer benefits, too, from the intimate experience of buying food from the hand of the person who grew it. In addition, the food is fresher and more diverse. In supermarkets, particular varieties of fruits and vegetables are favored due to their ability to survive transport to a far destination. Alternately, at a farmer's market, you will find versions of the fruits and vegetables you know that will surprise and delight your senses -- green striped heirloom tomatoes, purple cauliflower, white carrots, and edible flowers, just to name a few.

Make an effort to buy as much of your food as possible directly from local farmers. You will become one of a growing number of people eating delicious food to save the planet and having fun doing it.

great post Eva love browsing the farmers markets will be checking mine out locally that's for sure

me too

I don't have a farmers market nearby (to access without a car). My alternative is a little organic food store. ∼ 

It is an excellent idea for those who can, for those who have this close possibility. It's not my case.

I have 'Farmy' where I can order online. It is a young Swiss start-up team working with farmers. So I get everything delivered to my home directly from the farmer through 'Farmy'. Great idea, great young team!

They also have non-food items, all eco, and organic items from small farming families from different countries.

That's an interesting tip, thanks Eva
