shop local, save on mileage

I viewed and interesting documentary called Food, Inc.  It explores the truth about our food, where it comes from, the food industry as a whole, and its various impacts.  It was very factual but yet shocking to me at the same time.  One fact it discussed was on average one meal travels over 1500 miles to reach our plate.  1500 Miles!?  This includes the mileage to harvest, mileage to processing, mileage to the store, us traveling to the store to purchase it, and then to our plates. 

Produce is in season.  Shop your local farmers market.  Shop your local meat market.  Save on mileage. Healing Essence Massage, Pamela
