It’s no secret that the months leading up to your wedding are a great time for a bride to take especially good care of herself. This care can take many forms – hitting the gym, doing a bit of yoga, and making sure to get enough sleep are all great ways to ensure you reach your big day feeling energized. And for many of us, taking good care has a lot to do with the food we eat. It’s easy to say “drink lots of water and lay off that tenth piece of candy,” but many people, including myself, choose to go further. Eating organic and sustainable foods, preferably those grown close to home can really improve your health, not to mention the world around us. For many brides, this kind of wholesome food provides a nourishing backdrop for all her other preparations and activities.
But what’s a foodie bride to do when her big day rolls around? Certainly she can’t be expected to eat feedlot steak and fertilizer-coated veggies for one of the most important meals of her life! And a wedding cake filled with high-fructose corn syrup? Don’t get me started. Instead, I encourage you to do your homework and ask your caterer where the food they serve comes from. I guarantee you’ll find many in your area who can answer that question to your liking, and for a head start, see below!
