We were talking about eat Local during last weeks class. I know it is helping your own local by eating locally. because local food can save transportation money by selling their food in their local area. And we also can get fresh food in cheaper place. Sometimes I go to the farmers market to get some fresh local vegetable to use them for cook. And compare to those big grocery markets like Walmart, they are cheaper and have a better condition. Most of them are so fresh, So I feel getting healthy by just grocery shopping in local farmer’s market.
When I was in Korea, my parents prefer getting local food to cook them. And I was living next to the sea, so we always could get good and fresh sea food. At that time I felt healthier because I eat local and I eat the food that made with mom’s effort to keep their family healthy. After I moved into U.S. I was busy and also lazy, so I didn’t cook much even though I have a kitchen in my house. And I go get food from big grocery or fast food restaurant to fulfill my hunger. That caused me get a fat and made me unhealthier.
These days I’m trying eat local fresh food, I hope that I don’t get lazy again, and I will keep try to eat local fresh food as long as possible.
