Especially in summer (or all year for lucky people not in Wisconsin) get out to your local Farmer's Market. Walk the circuit to see what your vendors have before starting to buy. You get a walk in, view all the products and have time to make your decisions. Buying local foods is good for you and your community. Bring a friend or your family to spread the Spark. 4
Buy with the seasons.....buy local when you can......don't go buying cherries when they are not growing in your own country.........go with the bargain sheets you receive...use your coupons.......better still, grow a bit of your own.
Fighting the "corporate control over my body" to borrow a friend's phrase. There are zillions of CEO's out there looking to turn over a dime at my expense by marketing & selling insanely unhealthy and addictive food-like substances! I try to buy local, buy natural and unprocessed REAL foods!
I have a burning desire not to give these corporations any more money that necessary and that starts and ends with what I put in my mouth.
