By now you probably know that eating more veggies, fruits and grains, while at the same time reducing your intake of meat, poultry, seafood, eggs and dairy is a more sustainable and healthy way to live on our fragile planet. There is no better time to begin your healthier lifestyle than during the summer months which are fast approaching. There are more farmers markets now than ever before, as more and more of us are demanding locally-grown fruits and vegetables. If you grow your own, that’s even better. Or both!
Just know that when you purchase supermarket produce that has been shipped in from faraway places you are buying food with a high carbon footprint. Consider buying or growing (organic!!) your favorite veggies in bulk and putting them up in the freezer or canning for use throughout the winter….better for you and better for the Earth.
