Love Your Body, Know Your Farmer: Shopping Local for the Whole 30
Produce table at the Hollywood farmer's market
Here at LAist, we love our local farmers' markets. Now we're taking the opportunity to shop local and participate in the Whole 30 challenge. Can we (and you, should you choose to try) eat nothing but whole foods for 30 days?
No processed or packaged foods, no grains, no sugar, no alcohol, no energy bars or drinks, no processed meats (sorry, Slim Jim. We'll have to break up for now). Only whole natural foods can make the cut, and and Angelenos should add "local" to that list, since we live in an area where just about anything will grow.
This means that we'll be doing the vast majority of our shopping at our city's many bountiful farmers' markets for fresh local produce and meat. Plus, check out a few of the local markets we've gotten to know.
Together, we can eat healthy for a month. Maybe.
