Garden to Fuel: Bringing the Farm-to-Table Concept into Your Home
Apr 21, 2015
Eating healthy is key to helping you reach your fitness and weight loss goals. One of the healthiest ways to eat, is to ensure that you know where you are getting your food. The new farm-to-table buzz is booming among foodies and restaurants throughout America. If you’re not familiar with the concept, it’s rather simple – and it’s been around for centuries.
It’s simple, the concept eliminates the amount of people between your table and where food is harvested. It’s what farming families have done for centuries, it is putting the freshest, natural foods on your table. Which means only eating locally produced foods, this guarantees that it’s fresh and ultimately healthier. Many of the foods, you find in grocery stores have been processed and shipped for weeks from the time they are harvested. This allows the nutrients and flavors to dissipate. Farm to table ensures the freshness of the food you are eating.
How to Get it Farm to Table in Your Home
If you don’t have the ability to grow your own fruits in vegetables in a garden. Find a local Farmer’s Market. This will not only support the local farmers in your area and the economy, but it also will allow you to eat fresh, seasonal food that’s full of healthy nutrients. In addition to the farmer’s market, you could also find a sustainable garden in your community. This is a community garden where neighbors come together to grow fresh fruits and vegetables, and you can harvest the food when it is time as it’s needed.
Making sure that you have a healthy diet is essential for meeting your fitness and weight loss goals. Farm-to-table is one way to ensure that you are getting the most nutrients and eating fresh foods.
