About a week ago, I concluded an attempted two week adventure at eating only local produce. Many of you are thinking “You should have been doing that already…”, and I do, as much as I can. Unfortunately, though, I often succumb to the tempting case of raspberries… that are being sold in January. I know they were shipped upwards of a thousand miles before arriving at the Safeway down the street, but they just look so tasty!
Do any of you eat only local produce? If so, do you have any tips for people with a tighter budget such as myself? Why do you think eating locally is important?
