The Green Expectation: June
Make Health Conscious Environmentally Conscious: Buy locally grown or organic foods. Look for local farm markets or roadside fruit and vegetable stands! You can buy organic everywhere from the farmers market to the local grocery store. The organic section may be a little pricer, but it is a healthy choice with fewer chemicals and pesticides. For some healthier options, try organic raised poultry, fish, or seafood. When preparing these foods, choose cooking methods that use less energy and oil. Try roasting, baking, broiling, or grilling foods instead of frying them. These foods are not only good for you, but just as tasty. Eating organic helps your body and the environment, making it the best of both worlds!
