Most of us probably go through each day without really thinking about the impact of what we eat except for how it might affect each of us personally. Food is a vital substance. We should eat to live so that we have the health, energy, and strength to live fully each day. But how we eat also affects how we live, our personal environments, and the planet as a whole. Our food choices and demands can influence how the environment is used – holisticly and sustainably or greedily depleted and pillaged.
If we all took steps, even if just baby steps, to eat well, we can have a positive influence on others around us and on the global environment. How do we “eat well”? By consciously trying to eat better quality food more often: local, organic, sustainably farmed, in-season, and humanely-treated. With positive intentions when we live in natural alignment with our immediate and, in turn, our global and even universal environments, we can all live healthier including the planet. Good intentions do have the power to change the world. To health and good food!
