Locavore Day 1 and food sources

Day 1 order of food: peach, rolled oats (honey, milk), strawberry smoothie (milk, strawberries, honey), purple potato and garlic, corn on the cob (apple cider, garlic, onion sauce), roasted squash wedges, baked potato, steak (tomato, onion, milk sauce)

Yes, I ate parts of all of that.  I did not plan well at all, quite like Monique was saying.  So, the peach for breakfast and nothing more with me, I had to run home at lunch and think fast.  Then snacks of vegetables between meals until Remi bought steak and shared it with me.  I also tried to put milk in a blender hoping I could whip it enough to make butter.  Guess what happens to the blender, it gets to hot and shuts off and basically boils the milk from the heat.

Unlike Andrew, my struggle is prepping food and the time it takes to cook it.  I don’t have a problem with caffeine.  It is a great addiction to get over.

Here is where my food came from. Like many wondering about the miles driven to get food, had more research been done ahead of time, I am guessing I never would have had to leave a 5 mile radius of my house to get food from the 100 mile radius.  I now have more knowledge about the sources and markets.

  1. I sympathize with your prep/cook time dilemma. I’m spending so much time in the kitchen making dinner, I can’t even get caught up with my blog reading until 11pm! 🙂
