THE BOOK

When Alisa Smith and James MacKinnon learned that the average ingredient in a North American meal travels 1,500 miles from farm to plate, they decided to launch a simple experiment to reconnect with the people and places that produced what they ate. For one year, they would only consume food that came from within a 100-mile radius of their Vancouver apartment. The 100-Mile Diet was born.

I would love to do the challenge. Hubby and I have been watching the Food TV series on DVD. Friends told us to watch this ‘for fun’ and… It IS fun to watch and oh-so-eye-opening.

Have you seen this or heard about it?

More to come in future posts…

*Update: There have been various covers/copies printed regarding the 100 Mile Diet book. Plenty is the same story, in essence, of the locavore ideal (people eating locally grown foods – specifically within a 100 mile range). Smith and MacKinnon authored this book as well. I just ordered it through Amazon directly. The other versions can be ordered through second parties via Amazon. Haven’t been in bookstores like Barnes & Noble yet to see if they carry any copies. Let me know if you happen to see any copies elsewhere.
