The organic revolution is forging ahead

The organic revolution is forging ahead and without a little education it's easy to feel left behind.
As I'm sure you've noticed, organics cost on average twice as much as non-organic and are not always readily available. These factors dissuade many people from changing their eating habits.
For people who want to make a change but are overwhelmed, I am doing a 3 part series on the most imperative changes and how to make the adjustment easier.
The number one change is to eat local. Create a relationship with a local farmer; they will raise your meat along with your awareness.
Eating local cuts down on fuel consumption, pollution and the need for GMO foods that provide a longer shelf life.
Food also starts to lose its nutritional value the moment it is picked so eating fresh food is best for your body. A great resource for local organic farms can be found at http://www.farmerspal.com/region/chelan-county-washington/page/1/.
You should also check out the farmer's markets in your area, for Chelan and the
surrounding area, go here http://www.localfarmmarkets.org/WAfarmersmarkets.php.
As always, you can feel free to email us or give us a call at the spa with any questions and for more information.
