Tips for successful local eating

Thursday, February 21st, 2008

Tanny has been busy with the content for this site while I’ve been working behind the scene (and enjoying her yummy local cooking). Tonight I had a chance to peruse the web for other local eating site. This post from the EatLocalChallenge.com website caught my eye. It talks about the “Locavore Pledge”:

If not LOCALLY PRODUCED, then Organic.
If not ORGANIC, then Family farm.
If not FAMILY FARM, then Local business.
If not a LOCAL BUSINESS, then Fair Trade.

Sounds like a good set of rules to me.

So far I’ve been shocked by the number and variety of food producers Tanny has found local to Toronto. I can definitely attest that the meats are better. We’ve always known that local veggies and fruits taste better. I can’t wait for spring when we really kick off our diet.
