I have local food on the brain--from promoting and enjoying a successful screening of Fresh: The Movie to planning for my cooking demos at local farmers' markets to seeing roadside produce stands coming to life all over the place.
As I've said before, I find it kind of funny that it's so trendy to eat like folks did 150 years ago. But it's a good trend--one that benefits our health, our environment, our communities and our taste buds.
It isn't just here in our area, the locavore trend is nation-wide, which bodes well for the future. Changing the food culture in our country is something that has to happen if we are going to return to a healthy, sustainable way of producing the food we put in our bodies.
