It’s easy to be fat when most people sit at desks all day and eat out. Biking is not only a great form of exercise, it is also a lot of fun. Austin is a great city for biking, so take advantage of it. The Austin Cycling Association has a great website about biking Austin so check it out.
If we all did our part, we would stay healthier, enjoy life a bit more, and live a more sustainable and joy filled life and biking can be a apart of that!
Some people have the luxury of living out in the country and can grow their own food. Others, are living a busy life in the city and don’t have the time or space to grow their own food. Of course, you can always go to the box stores to get food, but how does that help your local food growers?
I love CSA’s. It is a great way to get fresh food every week/bi-monthly, monthly, etc. You work out the deal with the farm and they grow your food. Everybody wins and most of all keeping the food local is better for your health, your city, and its great for the farmers.
Here is a great farm that puts pride into their CSA program.
This is a great little site that tells you about all of the filth that is put into food. Eating locally grown foods is a great start, but getting this food into our restaurants is hard. Here is a site that shows you the places that really push for local, sustainable, healthy food.
There isn’t a lot of place to eat that are truly careful about sourcing their foods. Hopefully sites like this will raise awareness and more restaurants will take up the call to be healthy.
