If you would enjoy learning to eat locally, and seasonally, here are some suggested steps

If you would enjoy learning to eat locally, and seasonally, here are some suggested steps which have been adapted from Simply in Season(click on the link for the book description):

*Visit a farmer's market to see what is in season where you live. Be sure the produce being offerred is locally produced and if so, purchase the food from the farmer/producer directly. This will support a famer's family to continue to be able to offer you quality alternative food choices.

*Grow something edible even if it is in a container garden or convert some lawn areas into a raised bed(s) for a salad garden.

*Try to purchase milk, meat and eggs directly from the producer/farmer. Check to see if the meats are grass fed and the chicken/eggs are free range.

*Encourage your local grocer/produce manager to offer a wider selection of locally grown foods in season.

* Less expensive foods are not always better. If eating locally and seasonally is new to you, start with a goal of eating two to three meals a week which include seasonal foods.

For more information about recipes that celebate fresh, local foods in the Spirit of More With Less I would encourage you to invest in Simply in Seasonand shop with the book in hand when going to the grocery store or Farmer's Market.
