Mindful Eating Tip of the Day
“Shake the hand that feeds you”
This quote comes from my favorite book, In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan. As farmer’s market season approaches, I encourage you to get out there and support your local farmer. Not simply because the food is higher in nutritional quality and it’s better for the environment, but to develop an appreciation for where your food comes from. Slow down and chat with the farmer. Ask about the farm, what they grow, and what practices they use to prevent pests. Ask how they recommend cooking the food you purchase from them. Then sit down with your family and enjoy a fresh cooked meal you feel really good about.
