Recipe & Video Inspiration
Eat More Local Food
Supporting local farmers is more important than ever as the struggles of 2020 have threatened the livelihood of many residents and businesses. You can also make a positive environmental impact by purchasing mostly locally produced foods to reduce the transportation and packaging required to get from farm to store.
Eat More Organic Food
Choosing organic foods ensures that you avoid ingesting chemical and pesticide residues found on conventionally grown and genetically modified (GMO) fruits and vegetables. Down to Earth is opposed to GMO products because we believe they may pose health, safety, and other potential risks that far outweigh the purported benefits. By selecting foods labeled USDA Certified Organic, you can avoid GMO foods and support organic farming methods that help improve the health of the entire ecosystem. Buying and eating more organic foods is quite simply better for your health and increases the sustainability of local food system.

Body & Mind Detox
Is your body feeling run down from unhealthy food choices, environmental toxins, and the added stress of 2020? Even if your diet and lifestyle are very healthy, you can always benefit from recharging and eliminating toxins to achieve your best health and prevent illness. Detoxing your body can also lead to better immunity, more energy, and better digestion.
Detoxing your mind is just as crucial as cleansing your body! The unexpected strains and upheaval of the pandemic may have impacted you in unexpected ways. Elevated daily stress combined with being stuck at home can take a serious toll on your mental well-being. Committing to regular meditation practice, taking a digital/social media break, and spending quiet time in a forest or at a beach can work wonders to detox and reset your mind and improve your outlook on life.
