It’s funny that people will spend $5.00 on a Starbucks drink but have trouble with the expense of buying organic veggies and fruits. I was certainly an offender back in the day and I absolutely said –“It’s too expensive to eat healthy”. Then, I had an epiphany realizing that everything that I put in my body was either destroying or improving my health. Have you priced cancer or autoimmune disease meds and treatments lately? I can guarantee you that pharmaceuticals are expensive and are only getting pricier! Today I shelled out a pretty penny at the Binford Farmer’s Market and got some amazing healthy food!
I came across a list of all the local restaurants that use local organic ingredients and thought I would share. I’m putting my money towards the farmers and not toward Monsanto’s dreaded GMO’s
The following is a list of Local Restaurants using Local Ingredients—I’m putting my money into my health!
