characters Plenty One Man One Woman and a Raucous Year of Eating Locally Alisa Smith ✓ 4 characters characters ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Alisa Smith Mile Diet is a pathway home for anybody anywhere Call me naive but I never knew that flour would be struck from our 100 Mile Diet Wheat products are just so ubiuitous “the staff of life” that I had hazily imagined the stuff must be grown everywhere But of course I had never seen a field of wheat anywhere close to Vancouver and my mental images of late afternoon light falling on golden fields of grain were all from my childhood on the Canadian prairies What I was able to find was Anita’s Organic Grain Flour Mill about 60 miles up the Fraser River valley I called and learned that Anita’s nearest grain suppliers were at least 800 miles away by road She sounded sorry for me Would it be a year until I tasted a pie From The 100 Mile Diet From the Hardcover edition. Similar to other titles in that it follows the authors as they challenge themselves to eat locally for a year this book sets itself apart by going deeper into the history of their area in regard to the foods that once sustained locals and the changes that have occurred to go from local food sources to our now reliance on global food sources Definitely worth a read

characters Plenty One Man One Woman and a Raucous Year of Eating Locally Alisa Smith ✓ 4 characters characters ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Alisa Smith Ways close at hand They met the revolutionary farmers and modern day hunter gatherers who are changing the way we think about food They got personal with issues ranging from global economics to biodiversity They called on the wisdom of grandmothers and immersed themselves in the seasons They discovered a host of new flavours from gooseberry wine to sunchokes to turnip sandwiches foods that they never would have guessed were on their doorstepThe 100 Mile Diet struck a deeper chord than anyone could have predicted attracting media and grassroots interest that spanned the globe The 100 Mile Diet A Year of Local Eating tells the full story from the insights to the kitchen disasters as the authors transform from megamart shoppers to self sufficient urban pioneers The 100. Oh my the dreaded one star review I must say I went into this book with high hopes and ended up uite disappointed It seems like a book I would love a couple around my age living in Vancouver and trying to spend one year living on only food that was grown or raised within 100 miles of their home In our society these days this is no easy task They have predictable adventures trying to find difficult to locate foods flour salt anything but potatoes in the winter etc but in the end the stories were mild and unamusing The couple takes turns writing one chapter after the other and although it is occasionally interesting to hear their differing takes on the same subjects neither of them possess the skill to keep the reader enthused and splitting the workload did nothing to solve that deficiency The book was crafted from a blog that the couple kept while practicing the 100 mile diet and it reeks of blog at every turn In fact the most interesting sections were ones that were not in their blog such as a sojourn for a month avail from friends computers and telephones in a cabin in the northern wilds of British Columbia There are recipes in the book as well Most of them would be impossible for me to create with ingredients from less than 100 miles away Go figure For a much better book on the same subject try Animal Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver
