Here’s the thing , I will never be a locavore. I know too much about the amazing foods that are out there (bananas, avocado, chocolate!) to be able to forgo them forever. Besides, to me, being a locavore is more the process then the outcome. It’s about to learning where your food comes from and how your choices as a consumer affect the food system.
And it’s about food.
Today we had brunch at Eco Cafe – homemade gazpacho with local eggs and sausage. Dinner was basil shrimp stuffed egg plant (shrimp from Louisiana shrimper Nicky Alfonso, eggplant from Hollygrove Market, and basil from my own backyard). I meant to take a picture of it but forgot to in my hunger.
If we hadn’t been participating in the Eat Local Challenge who knows what we might have ate. But I have a feeling it wouldn’t have been as tasty.
Has the Eat Local Challenge changed your eating habits more at home or in where you choose to eat out?
