100 Mile Diet: Local Eating for Global Change

There is some logic in eating only food that's locally raised and produced in a radius of 100 Mile...
Of course, in a heavy urbanized setting you'll have to be creative!

In 2005, Alisa Smith and J.B. MacKinnon began a one-year experiment in local eating.
Their 100-Mile Diet struck a deeper chord than anyone could have predicted, inspiring thousands of individuals, and even whole communities, to change the way they eat.
Locally raised and produced food has been called “the new organic" — better tasting, better for the environment, better for local economies, and better for your health.
From reviving the family farm to reconnecting with the seasons, the local foods movement is turning good eating into a revolution.
