Day 8. - Your Food...Choose more wisely!
Eat less meat and choose more organic and locally grown food items, which will improve your health and lower fat as well as helping the environment.
You do not have to be a vegetarian (though that is best), but eating less meat (especially beef) and more organic products, including higher amounts of colorful fruits & vegetables, is better for you and our environment. Certified USDA Organic food is raised without chemicals and processed without additives and contains no less than 95% organic by weight. Buying local and organic lessens the degradation of the environment through not only farming practices, but all of the transportation costs and pollution created by crossing the country. Eating less meat overall helps the environment in many ways, including lessening greenhouse gas emissions from the animal farming and the methane from the animals themselves.
Buying locally and organically, while minimizing meat consumption, is not only good for the environment, fewer chemicals in your food will prove to be better for your overall health in the long-run. There is a direct correlation between a cleaner environment and improved individual health, and the closer you come to being more ecologically-minded, so too will there be improvements in your health.
Choose organically grown/raised.
