Locavore Movement

Locavore Movement

Definition: A movement in the United States and elsewhere that has spawned an interest in sustainability and eco-consciousness; those who are interested in eating food that are locally produced, not moved long distance to market. Some people consider food grown in 100 miles of their location local.

When I first started to learn about this phenomenon it seemed a little crazy, but once I tested this theory on myself I began to understand the benefits. Shopping at the farmers market became a ritual for me and my friends on Sundays. It felt so rewarding to not only help the local farmers, but to help myself as well. Having the experience of making a fresh salad after leaving a farmers market verses buying massed produced food at a supermarket are 2 very different things. For me I feel more alive and energized after eating fresh organic produce and my outlook for the day is usually one of positivity. When we eat foods that are local we are not only supporting our local farmers, but we are eating foods that are organic and/or pesticide-free and above all helping our environment. It is a win-win situation for everyone involved.  As part of the macrobiotic diet they believe in living in the accordance of nature. Eating foods from another climate violates that order of the universe and undermines our health. Eating local and eating seasonal (foods grown in a particular season) will help maintain the balance of your body which leads to greater awareness of oneself and overall a healthier individual. Bottom line... eat local as often as you can. You will feel better, think clearer, and help those around you. Something to think about next time you shop at the grocery store.
