When I was taking acupressure courses, one of them was on foods. Our teacher was very clear that we were to eat foods that were grown within a 50 mile radius and appropriate to the season.
If it’s winter, it must be root vegetables. And if you’re lucky, tasty bitter greens grown in a cold frame
To eat from our region is to honor the Mother Earth. It is to honor our bodies. It is to honor Peace.
It is to take from what is available to us which means to leave what must be available to others. So many times what the West needs is grown where those from the Southlands might have.
Let us eat in Peace.
