If you order your weekly meals from Evolve Paleo Chef, you know that we support locally grown meat and produce. Whether it’s our grass-fed beef, free-range chicken, or pasture-raised pork, you can rest assured knowing you’re getting the highest quality local product out there. The Paleo lifestyle emphasizes sustainability and fresh foods, meaning that eating local meat and produce is right up every Paleo person’s alley. If you’re unaware of the benefits of eating local meat and produce, Evolve has just a few examples to persuade you to make the switch!
Sustainably raised, local meats and produce a far superior taste than their industrial farm counterparts. Most of us have had a tomato from a local market and a tomato from the grocery store..and do you remember which one tasted better? Exactly.
Additionally, pasture-raised and grass-fed meats tend to be much more flavorful and higher quality than factory farmed varieties.
In addition to stimulating the local economy and supporting local farmers, eating local has inherent environmental benefits in the community as well. Factory farms tend to completely destroy the environment surrounding them. They pollute the air, water, and soil with contaminants while local, sustainable farms tend to maintain the farmland in your area and leave an incredibly less significant carbon footprint.
When there’s less steps between your food’s source and your stomach, the less of a chance of contamination. Another benefit of having fewer steps that your food must take to your plate is that the nutrient value is still high. Traveling food from big grocery stores has diminished nutritional value, higher fat content, higher caloric content, and probably has quite a few hormones and food additives within it.
If you are within one of our delivered areas, be sure to order your weekly meals from Evolve Paleo Chef! We support local farms and communities by serving local meat and produce and we encourage everyone to take a trip to their farmer’s market and visit a local butcher for superior food in their diet!
