The 100-Mile Diet: A Year of Local Eating by Alisa Smith
rating: 4 of 5 stars
Written in chapters that depict each month of the journey, alternating between both partners and authors and their perspectives, this book provided a lot of interesting information on eating habits in our current society as well as a background on how it came to be this way.
I appreciated the discussion about the importance of eating local not only to support a local economy but also the food is fresher and more authentic.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about sustaining our community and contributing to a more plentiful life experience. I know I plan to purchase more local foods and will question the way the food was processed next time I am in the grocery story - which I hope will be less as I'd love to go to more farmers markets.
