Healthy Food on the Road
Everyone knows when you travel it isn’t always easy to stay healthy and eat organic food. Our Airstream has a kitchen so we will cook most of our meals. Here are the sites we use to find healthy, local and organic food while on the move:
Farmers Markets – Local Harvest website – The best organic food is what’s grown closest to you. Use their site to find farmers’ markets, family farms, and other sources of sustainably grown food in your area, where you can buy produce, grass-fed meats, and many other goodies. This is an excellent resource!
Eat Well Guide – The Eat Well Guide® is a free online database for finding fresh, locally grown and sustainably produced food (includes organic) in the United States and Canada. Listings range from stores, to farms, to restaurants, to local bakers and butchers. You can search by location, keyword or category to find good food, download customized guides, or plan a trip with the mapping tool. Local, sustainable but not always organic.
Organic.org – site dedicated to everything organic. They want to educate people on the benefits of organic agriculture, food and products. With an increasingly crowded marketplace of organic goods, it is crucial to understand what the word ‘organic’ means, what type of products are available, the significance of purchasing them, and finally, how someone with little knowledge about organics can begin to take steps towards an organic lifestyle.
