An interesting book to be sure. I am fascinated by people who "live off the land" or eat locally. I always WANT to do this but.....

Alisa Smith and James Mackinnon set out to eat for a year on a "100 mile Diet". That meant that everything, yes everything that they consumed had to originate within a 100 mile radius of their home in Vancouver. That meant if something had been produced locally but had ingredients that came from farther afield then it wasn't to be. A lot of work to be sure.

Enjoyed the book, inspires me but I won't be living off the land any time soon.

  1. So...does Diet Coke originate with 100 miles of Vancouver?? If not, I'd be screwed.


Thank you SOOO much for commenting. We bloggers, of which I am such a minnow in such a big pond, live for our comments.
