You want to be healthy. You want leanness. You want to feel awesome as much as possible. You want perfect digestion if possible. You want to avoid sickness. You want to be disease and cancer free.
You can have it all. The most important step is feeding your body what it desires.
How do you do this?
Buy food at a farmers market.
Here is what you may find in abundance:
- Fresh veggies
- Fresh fruit
- Pastured eggs
- Grass-fed meat (including the nutrient dense organ meats like liver!)
- Nuts and seeds
- Extra virgin/cold pressed Olive Oil
Local food. Sustainable food. Perhaps certified organic food. Food that nourishes you. Food that will prevent sickneess, disease and cancer. Food that will make you come alive.
Food that will make you healthy.
You will meet farmers and will be able to learn exactly how your food is grown and raised. You will build relationships with the farmers you buy from.
You will NOT find crap. You will NOT find CAFO meat. You will NOT find colorful boxes.
Begin to focus your grocery shopping efforts at your local farmers market starting NOW!
Then thank me later.
You need to begin feeding your body whole food if you want vibrant health. You will find this at the farmers market. Sure, you can buy whole, real food at your standard grocery store. But, most of the "food" that is available is crap unless you are shopping at a place like Whole Foods. Farmers markets are not perfect either but it is by far the best place to start. It is by far the best place to focus on.
Go ahead and buy coconut milk at your areas standard grocer.
But, if you want to make it easy on yourself then just visit your farmers market. There are countless benefits in doing so.
