Good day all Cake + Loaf’ers! I’m Ely, a Holistic Nutritionist at Easy Peas in Hamilton.
As a Nutritionist and a lifelong student of all things healthy and natural, I was immediately drawn to the philosophy of Cake + Loaf. Organic, locally grown breads that are not only healthy but mouthwatering.
There’s no doubt in my mind that eating locally is a wise decision. In generations past, eating organic and locally grown was not a fad, it wasn’t even a choice. Families did their grocery shopping from farmers and meals were made from scratch on a daily basis. Fast forward 100 years and time is at a premium. But should our health suffer because of it?
Eating locally has many health benefits. It’s safer for one. Smaller farmer tend to use less chemicals when growing their crop. That means less chemicals in your body and in the body of your family. Farmers are also far less concerned with shipping and therefore pick produce that is ripe and at it’s best. Mass produced grains are drenched with chemicals to ensure maximum profit.
Eating locally also means eating seasonally for the most part. And that means eating breads that are made fresh and with grains that have maintained their full nutrients.
Best of all, eating locally tastes better! If you’ve ever tasted a fresh picked apple, you’ll know the taste is unparalleled. Flavors are unique and intensified.
Since my first CSB I have never looked back. How much more of a win-win situation could this be? Healthy and tasty!
