Eat Locally, Think Globally: Conscious Living

At Priya, a lot of our food comes from what we grow or local farmers. When the ingredients are as fresh as they can be, old recipes burst with new flavors.

For the first time in my life, I really know where my food is coming from.

Here are some reasons why eating locally is the way to go:

  1. Variety. There are so many options: produce, legumes, seafood. We have so much to choose from!
  2. Eating Seasonally Saves Money. Food produced close to home often costs less. I often plan my meals around what’s in season and it’s been an effective money-saving strategy.
  3. Reduce Your Carbon Footprint. Eating locally, seasonally, and organically is much less costly to our planet: our air, water, energy, and natural environment.
  4. Community Building. Community is what we’re all about here at Priya Living, and buying locally is a great way to make personal connections. It’s a way to learn about the region we live in and to support our local farmers. Do you want to know what grows here and why? Ask your local farmers. If you’re like many of us here at Priya and have a green thumb, chatting with a local farmer is the perfect opportunity to get insider tips and tricks on how to grow the perfect garden veggies!
  5. Innovative Cuisine. Priya Living’s residents come from all over the world. Using locally grown produce in international recipes has been a fantastic way to introduce both new and old favorites to our neighbors. We’re literally eating locally and thinking globally each time we make a meal.
