Mother Nature provides humans everything they need to be healthy and heal.
It’s when humans think they know better and try to “outsmart” her is when they become the cause of their own demise.
Shopping locally can have the most profound effect not only on our health but our world.
Food can travel up to 1500 miles just to be offered in your local grocer!
It is crazy how we have become so accustomed to this unsustainable (sooner or later it must collapse) way of living.
It's time we wake up and look to our own communities and develop partnerships that can literally change the entire world!
There are SO many benefits to shopping local...
CSA's (Consumer Supported Agriculture) is a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer.
Depending on the CSA in your area, you can source a variety of products based on season and personal choice.
When you join you pay in advance and pick up at their drop-off locations near you! Click here to find a CSA today!
Many local farmers' markets and CSA's provide access to consciously and locally raised meats, dairy, and eggs.
Milk has been one of the most controversial subjects in nutrition. Contrary to popular belief it can have a huge impact on our health... but not the kind you find in your local grocer.
If milk is part of your or your family's daily diet, look at the Real Milk website to find grass-fed and raw milk options (goat, sheep, and cow) near you.
You don't have to change EVERY aspect of how you source food, just start with going to your local farmer's market, joining a CSA, or just supporting local and small businesses.
As we begin to shift away from consuming food tainted with toxins and chemicals, we will begin to heal, have better health, support and create a healthier community, and rebel against a food and "health" system that is broken and corrupt!
Yes, sourcing food this way can change these broken systems from the ground up!
We don't change anything overnight, we change things with consistent and intentional actions every day. Just start somewhere!
