The concept is very simple. You are what you eat.
Economically speaking, this also means that you are what you consume.
Since consumer spending makes up over 70% of our national eonomy, logic dictates that the smarter, healthier and more sustainable our purchasing is as individuals, the more sustainable and strong our national economy will become.
The simple ripples in the water can have drastic effects, in the long run.
So, here’s what we do.
If Americans ate less meat, less fast food and manufactured food and instead ate more locally grown fruits and vegetables, as well as whatever food you can grow yourself, we could bring about the change we need without having to wait for anyone to take the lead.
Simple changes to your daily diet, even if done in moderation, combined with enough people doing the same thing can literally change the world.
