Seasonal foods offers Let’s break it down—your approach to food can be simplified into three categories.
Eat where you live! The commonly accepted standard for local food means it was grown, gathered, or raised within a 150 mile radius of where you live. Another added benefit of local food is that you will know where your food comes from and can literally visit the source.
Sustainable food is produced in ecologically principled ways that cause little or no harm to the earth or its inhabitants—plants, animals or humans.
Many stores are starting to carry and label products that are local, organic, or transitional. You are more likely to find them at regional grocery store chains and not the mega-stores.
