TEN WAYS TO START
- Ask questions about your food and drink: What's in it? Who made it? How was it made?
- Contemplate the nutrient density of food you come across and give growing a little bit of your own a try.
- If you enjoy wine, find out if the grapes were irrigated or dry-farmed.
- Ask questions about what you read: Was it ghost-written? Who funded it?
- Take a look at chemicals in your household: cleaners, yard applications, personal care products. Are they healthy for your house, yard and self?
- Shop at a food co-op or check out a farmers' market and talk to the seller of the food. Ask about possibly visiting the farm or operation.
- Learn how to make bread from ancient grains like einkorn, emmer and spelt. It's pretty easy to make bread once you get the hang of it.
- Subscribe to online newsletters about the food movement, regenerative agriculture and organizations that help keep consumers informed.
