How and Why to Support Local Food Producers with Nikki Seibert – Stop Chasing Skinny Episode #9

Did you know that nutrients begin to degrade as soon as produce is picked? And that fruits and vegetables which have to be transported are typically picked before they are fully ripe in order to stay intact during the shipping process?

Many of my clients/fans come to me because of the “fitness model” stuff and are initially drawn to the appearance piece of health (my ego TOTALLY got me into this field), but now that I have been in this industry for over 10 years, I see the bigger picture and want to educate people on how our outward appearance starts from the inside and our choices matter.

I wanted to bring Nikki onto the show so she could shed a little light on the subject of buying local. Buying local is beneficial in just about every way from supporting the local community financially as well as improved health on the end of the consumers.
