I am passionate about food. It brings people together and fuels our body. My Bikram yoga practice made me very aware of the food I was putting into my body and my bodies reaction to it. I felt so clean from all the sweating that I no longer wanted to put junk food into my body.
In Vancouver we are so lucky to have access to a variety of amazing food. Currently, we have a bounty of local produce. Just go check out one of the many farms in Richmond or your closest farmers market at http://www.eatlocal.org.
Right now is the perfect time to take advantage of the 100 mile challenge. Try to eat only foods produced, grown or sold within 100 miles of where you live. This way we eat healthier and reduce our carbon footprint. To learn more, read the book 100 Mile Diet by Alisa Smith and J.B. MacKinnon.
