Did you know that eating locally can help boost your immune system?  It’s healthy living at its best. Since local foods have to travel less distance to get to you, they may not be as processed as foods that have to travel thousands of miles to reach our dinner table.  An article on www.GreenSceneUSA.com talks about the benefits of eating locally and minimizing the amount of bad bacteria and pathogens that are collected along the way while food travels great distances to reach us.

Eat Locally | Healthy Living

Not only the distance, but you have to be aware that local foods provide microbes that are particular to the area in which we live and boosts our immune system.  It’s a small step toward healthy living.  And today, I learned of one more reason why buying locally has a greater appeal for me and my family.  Read this article on Health Freedom to learn about a nauseating method of gluing our meat together to produce “quality” pieces for us to purchase in grocery stores.  Warning! It is not the most pleasing read for your belly, but hopefully it will get you to your local farmer’s market for your next purchase instead of the chain grocery store.

So now you are saying, how in the world do I find these farmers and where can I purchase there food for healthy living?  Well, I have used this site for years, LocalHarvest.org, to find local farmers where I live and where I vacation.  Local Harvest has a wealth of information about where to shop, what to purchase what time of year for your region, and more.  Bookmark this site.  It will definitely come in handy.

To Your Health!

  1. I had not thought about the difference in eating local produce. But I can say that we switched to local honey about a year ago and my daughter had NO ALLERGIES this year. She’s 14 and even she is a believer now. Every year for about the last 5 years she has had seasonal allergies. She didn’t get them in the fall and we thought it was a fluke. Now she didn’t get them in the Spring either. I am 100% a believer!
