Reading List

Examining the food we eat has been on of the most fundemental changes made to my lifestyle since being green concious.
Eating organic and eating locally farmed fruits and veggies has significantly changed the way I look at produce. There is a perceptable difference between the lettuce that is mass produced and shipped far away and the lettuce that is fresh, full of vitamins and more importantly taste!
On my reading list is this book:

Plenty: One Man, One Woman, and a Raucous Year of Eating Locally

The story of eating nothing raised or cultivated beyond a 100 mile radius of thier home; two writers chronicle a year of eating local food and what they learned in the process.

Althought I'm not sure I'm ready to take the plunge into the 100 mile diet, I'm inspired by the idea of eating locally, for our health and for the environment. It is a small change that can make a big impact; for more inspiration and information, check out http://100milediet.org/
