As part of a whole nourished life, choose local, seasonal, organically grown fruits and vegetables and meat and eggs sourced from local farms raising animals in a humane and ethical way. This not only supports your local economy, but the nutrient-density of these foods far surpasses that of conventionally grown produce flown in from thousands of miles away or meat from feedlot animals. Here are some great local resources if you’re in Colorado, as well as some options for great companies doing their part to produce high quality goods to supplement what you get from your local farmer.
