Locavore Eating!

Page history last edited by Deanne Bednar 10 years, 8 months ago

Eat like a Locavore - Focus on foods close to home for nutrition, conservation, and support for your local economy. Most foods Americans eat travel 1,500 miles before getting to your table. Foods, especially vegetables, start to lose nutritional value only One Hour after they are harvested. It's possible to get more punch and delicious taste out of veggies that are grown by local farmers, rather than veggies from large operations focusing on shipping quality. Eating locally is also a major benefit to your local economy.

We would need to check and see if the foods in these recipes are local.  I am not sure I agree with the idea of being ONLY vegan, but this website has an inspiring number of recipes with photos! Yum.
