Growing Your Own Food

Having a healthy lifestyle isn’t always about just eating the right things and getting enough exercise, at least not for me. There are a lot of things like preservatives in packaged foods to make them last longer that are simply not good for the body. Many have been shown to cause things like cancer. I know it’s not always an option but since I still live at home during the summer when I’m not in university, I plan on trying to grow some of my own food.

Now I’m pretty lucky because my grandfather owns a farm where he naturally raises cattle on the land and he butchers them himself so that solves my meat problem but I plan to also grow lots of organic, GMO free vegetables in the hopes of eating healthier. When it comes time to plant in a few short weeks I’ll make some more posts with pictures and show everyone what I’m doing.

I know what I’m doing isn’t an option for everyone but look a little closer at what you’re eating and maybe try and find alternatives if you can afford it. You won’t regret it!



I'm a university student currently attending Saint Mary's University and majoring in Criminology. I spend most of my free time going to the gym, driving my motorcycle or hanging out with friends.
