Well, Today is the first day of the August 2014 Local Eating Challenge, and I have to admit I am quite ill prepared. I did make sure to thoroughly gorge myself on all the leftover contraband I could find yesterday…but I didn’t bother to plan out my local meals and snacks for today.
Not to worry, though, because eating local is easy. I woke up this morning and packed my vittles to munch on throughout the day at work. Blueberries, greens, and cucumbers from a local farm, kale, onions, radish seed pods, and mint (for tea) from my garden, and a few peas from my dad’s garden. I usually do most of my heavy eating in the evening, when I am home, but I haven’t worked out a menu plan yet, so I will have to take that as it comes. (You’ll find I’m super organized, and like planning ahead)
I am feeling very optimistic however, because I have a fantastic accountability team and support group. We will see how I feel at the end of the month.
