Enjoy Locally Grown Produce at Ontario SUBWAY® Restaurants

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of SUBWAY® Restaurants for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I prefer to feed my family with locally grown ingredients for a number of different reasons. The biggest one is the freshness factor. Local produce doesn’t have as far to travel to get to your dinner plates. It doesn’t have to travel across the country in a transport truck or be flown in from a far off country. It comes right from your own backyard practically! Fresh veggies taste amazing and I feel good knowing they were just picked for us to enjoy.

For me, nutrition is important. I include veggies in every meal and will buy locally grown ingredients whenever I can. I’m the type of person who looks to see the origin of food at the grocery store. I feel better about knowing where it’s coming from.

Of course, there are many other reasons why I love local food. Let’s think about the economy for a second. Buying local supports the community where you live which improves the economy in your area and province as a whole. You are supporting local farmers and their families with your purchases.undefined
