Kate’s Book Nook – Eat Local for Less by Julie Castillo

Eat Local for LessThink about biting into a juicy tomato that you just picked out of your childhood garden. Now think about those pinkish orbs in the store that have to sit out on the counter for days before somewhat resembling a tomato and barely tasting like one. This is what the book is about. Choosing to eat the first tomato which may not be as convenient as choosing to eat the second.

In her book, Eat Local for Less, Julie helps you understand what local food is. She discusses how you can do it for less than supermarket food. She explains the various source opportunities whether buying direct or through an organization. A real eye opener is the industrialization of our food sources and how it has affected living healthy lives.

Adjusting your lifestyle is not that difficult. Julie shows you how. There are benefits in sharing the experience with the family which begins with a visit to the local farm and moves into the kitchen. Meal preparation and dining together brings about a deeper connection to the food that you are eating. And, if you are gardening as well as buying local, you will experience a deeper connection to nature.

Eating local nurtures deeper connections with the farmers. Not only do you know from where your food is coming, you know who has toiled to grow it. Eating local is a more effective use of natural resources. You are not buying a tomato that has been transported thousands of miles using lots of fuel to get it into your supermarket. Your tomato comes from either your own back yard or from a farm that is located 100 miles or less.

Julie is not advocating that you become a vegetarian or vegan. She’s guiding you to the best quality of foods either animal, vegetable or fruit. How you use them in your diet is up to you. Just think about how much better they will taste.   BUY NOW>>
