1. Grow your own food
“The best thing you can do is to develop a relationship with food and growing,” says Telford. Whether you’re growing herbs on your kitchen counter or heirloom tomatoes in your backyard, growing your own food can help you develop better eating habits and make you think of food in a new way. It doesn’t cost much to bring home a few seeds and some soil, and you’ll have the satisfaction of putting together a great meal with fresh, pesticide-free ingredients from your own garden.
