Choosing locally grown food gives me the warm fuzzies, knowing that I’m helping local farmers and voting with my dollars. This shows I respect my body and community by paying an extra buck.
I buy most of my produce and all of my meats, fish and cheeses locally, through a community-supported agriculture company.
I swear the foods really do taste better. Egg yolks are more yellow, and fruits and veggies are sometimes picked within 1-2 days instead of trucked across the country.
