I started rethinking my food habits earlier this year while reading the 100 Mile Diet: A Year of Local Eating (the US edition is called Plenty: One Man, One Woman, and Raucous Year of Eating Locally, it also has different cover art). If I didn’t post about it when I finished reading it, I loved the book. I loved how both authors wove their lives into each chapter while sharing their challenges eating locally grown food. You can learn more about their site at 100milediet.org
After finishing I began reading Plant, Animal, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver (with Steven L. Hopp and Camille Kingsolver). The concept was the same; eat locally grown foods for a year. It was interesting but a slower read, the library due date came and went and I was only half through it. I plan to sign it out again and finish it some day. What interesting to me while the topic was same they presented a whole new look at the topic and issues.
Then last month, Jessica got me thinking about what I eat, how North America farms, and vegetarianism. To the point I am day 19 into a 30 day vegetarian challenge. What I've learned is that there is more to food than just eating. Leads me to a question for you the reader:
