A key part of Biohacking is eating food of quality – both in terms of getting good nutrition in, and keep the bad stuff out. That’s one of the reasons we focus on grass-fed food – including butter and meat, and one of the reasons we choose krill oil which is sourced so far from our toxic near-shore oceans.
One place – other than upscale supermarkets – where you might be able to get good quality food is a local farmers market near you. The goal would be to find food that isn’t mass-produced using antibiotics, corn-fed rather than grass-red (while the animals roam around), etc. Here are some local farmers markets in Asia – I will update them as I find more.
And for those not used to buying at farmers’ markets, here is a great post on how to get the most out of your visits.
