If you want to take the 100 mile diet challenge, read up on LocalFoodAkron, a site that tracks the story of Eric and Erica as they blogged about eating only local food all summer. It’s an honest approach to the struggles and success of eating local food. Eric and Erica were recently featured in an Akron Beacon Journal story. What an exciting adventure!
Eating local could mean 100 miles, or it could mean eating food made or grown in your state or region. There’s even a new term for people who eat locally – locavores.
GreenCity BlueLake provides some recipes for eating regionally. It’s becoming easier than ever to be a locavore. And, if you make a root cellar now, you could store your fresh potatoes and squashes all winter.
