You've heard me and others tout the idea of eating locally grown, produced and sold foods. They're more nutritious, more flavorful, better for our environment and better for our local economy.
But eating a totally locavore diet is not easy. Think about it. Say you wanted to eat food only produced in Bucks County or even Eastern PA. What things would you not be able to use? Salt and pepper. Olive oil. Peanut butter. Certain spices.
Well, a 27 year-old woman from Maine, Katherine Creswell, decided to eat only food produced in Maine for a month. It was such a success, that she's decided to try it for a whole year.
Read an interview with her in the Boston Globe. It's pretty impressive that she did this. She did have to cheat on one item...soy milk (she's lactose intolerant).
So, are you going to give it a try?
