A new law will come into effect today making companies label produce and meats with the country it comes from. However processed food don't have to the Obama administration says its a start. I don't know if it will make folks make healthier choices but its interesting, I often pick up a piece of fruit and imagine how the orchard would be.
Amazingly America grows so much even in North Carolina where I live I am amazed by what folks grow in their back gardens squash, zucchini, apples, tomatos, spinach, okra, potatoes just to name a few. Check out your local farmers markets for great local and healthy produce and you may be surprised to see what's grown in your neck of the woods!
But remember unprocessed foods, with just one or two ingredients are much better for you, like fruits and vegetables, organic meats, lentils and beans and whole grain breads. If you don't know what the ingredient is don't eat it !!!
