Eating Local

Posted on August 30, 2012 02:43 am

One thing many people are trying to do nowadays is to eat local.Vegetables, fruits, herbs and nuts sold at your local farmer's market are foods that are local. When shopping in a grocery store ask the produce manager where the food is grown. Planting your now garden is a wonderful experience to have with your children. Kids are more likely to eat foods they've grown themselves. You can also help start a community garden or a garden at your local school.

Tomatoes are one of the easiest plants to grow. They contain the antioxidant lycopene. It is technically a fruit, but usually used as a vegetable. The lycopene gives tomatoes their red color. All vegetables and fruits that are brightly colored are very healthy and good for you, so try to incorporate more in your daily diet.
