Eat Local

Today people are becoming more and more aware of the importance of eating local. Why? Well, for several reasons. One, it is important to support our local farms. Two, eating local offers us more nutrition. The moment fruits and vegetables are picked; it begins to lose its nutritional value. Therefore, if we eat closer to home, we will increase the benefits of what that food offers us nutritionally. In addition, meat is also important to eat local. Again, we can support our farmers, plus you can visit that farm to ask about feeding methods and how the animal is raised. Choose organic meats most often and avoid animals that are given antibiotics and hormones. Grass fed beef and is always best.
