New Month's Resolution: June

Eat Local  

Health activist and author Michael Pollan says "shake the hand that feeds you" which is some of the best advice you can get when shopping for food.

While many of us shop at the grocery store regularly, the best place to buy your food is straight from the farmer. This month I encourage you to eat local as much as possible -- whether it is from your garden, a CSA or your local farmers' market. 

Watch this video to see more benefits of eating local:

In 2012, I challenge you to do a new month’s resolution instead of a new year’s resolution. This year, let’s celebrate accomplishments and re-focus on new goals each month.

On the first of every month, a new month’s resolution will be posted on DrKehres.com. Share your updates in the comments below or on the Kehres Health Facebook page. Articles and tips will be posted with each resolution.  

See the previous New Month's Resolutions:   
January - Go to bed by 10:30 pm  
February - Go gluten-free 
March - Try a new workout each week
April - Create a healthy home & reduce chemicals

May - Move a mile every day
