Eating only what grows around you
I really liked this article. With the recent food scares, I'm thinking of doing something like this on a local level. If anyone wants to chime in about where to buy produce, meats, or anything else edible in Walton County post it here and I will post the article as soon as it's published in the Herald.
Once the purview of foodies and hippies, 'locavorism' is going mainstream
When Katherine Gray takes her kids to the grocery store, they can pick out as many apples and pears as their hearts desire. But bananas? Pineapples? Mangoes? Sorry kids, if they werenít grown within 100 miles of Grayís house in Portland, Ore., chances are they wonít make it into the grocery cart.For years, the idea of eating only food grown locally and in season was reserved for upscale chefs like Alice Waters of Chez Panisse in Berkeley, Calif., or serious hippies living off the grid, while the rest of us didnít think twice about gulping down blueberries from Chile or avocadoes from Mexico.
