Seasonally - I’m embarrassed as living thing that I don’t even know what is in season. Why didn’t I learn this in grade school? Yes, we are pretty magical and ingenious to be able to eat any food year round. I am not going to deny anyone’s choice to do just that, but I think for myself and family, we will tune ourselves to be a little more in sync with the world.
Organic - Food with less chemicals, antibiotics, and hormones, but with more character.
Locally - Just chatted about starting a weekend tradition of hitting the farmers markets. It will be a fun outing to put us more in touch with our food and community.
This all boils down to a little more dollar and a little bit more time but it should be worth it. If the tobacco lobby can be defeated, and growth hormone in milk almost completely gone in the US today, enough people doing this can only lead to a healthier planet. If capitalism still rules the day then the dollars in my pocket are how I can change the world.
I’ll turn myself into one savy food consumer.
