Sitting in a small town in India one can place order for stuffs from other countries .
For Apparels , Cosmetics , Books or other stuff’s it’s Okay but for food products it’s not good and is not a healthy option .
In today’s post I will discuss the benefit of eating local foods .
Local food is the food grown locally , in your area near to your city or town .
Mostly from near by villages .
* LOCAL FOOD ARE HEALTHIER
Local food are allowed to ripen naturally , where as food that has to travel long distance are plucked before they ripe and are loaded with preservatives for longer shelf life .
Fruits & Vegetables that we buy from local vendors are fresh with less preservatives .
So local food retain more nutrients and are healthier.
*LOCAL FOOD TASTE BETTER
Since they are fresh they taste better than the ones transported from far off places .
One can feel the natural flavor of these local foods .
Specially seasonal fruits and vegetables taste good then preserved ones .
Mangoes in Summer & Red Carrots in winters have a distinct taste which we can not get if we try the preserved ones in other seasons .
*LOCAL FOOD BENEFITS THE ENVIRONMENT
Buying local food means less transportation and thus less air pollution .
So they are boon to the environment .
* IT SUPPORTS LOCAL ECONOMY
Buying local food supports farmers & vendors in our area and thus helps local economy .
It’s like supporting you state & country and helping the economy , empowering local farmers and making their life better .
*LOCAL FOODS ARE SAFER
They are safer as less preservatives are used .
Chances of contamination while handling & transport is less .
So these are the benefits of eating local foods .
So by eating local food we are not only helping our economy and local farmers but also we are helping ourselves by eating healthier .
