Taking on the Challenge of "The Hundred-Mile Diet"

From The Tyee via Alternative Energy~Renewable Energy, an account of one couple's efforts so far to live one year on a "Hundred-Mile Diet." While eating locally-produced food is environmentally sound and tasty, there are also challenges to overcome in our globalized food system: expense, lack of variety and an inability to find locally grown and produced classes of food (grains, for instance) have already thrown monkey wrenches into Canadian couple Alisa Smith and J.B. McKinnon's plans. But they persevere, and will be reporting on the progress regularly to The Tyee.
