How to: Take the Eat Local Challenge


The blog Life Begins at 30 has begun hyping May as the "Eat Local Challenge Month." The challenge is to find all your food from within a 100-mile radius (quite similar to the 100-mile diet we covered before) for an entire month, and this can be a pretty tricky thing to pull off, especially if you don't live in or very near an agricultural area. So how do you take the challenge if you live in, say, Boston, like one of their readers? Among their tips and resources for eating local are, chatting up the local Whole Foods, and sourcing from local, smaller co-ops. There's a whole section of the blog committed to the challenge for learning more about sourcing, buying and enjoying local food. ::Life Begins at 30
