I buy it all, hook, line, and sinker! We have been subscribing to a local farmer's food basket delivery service. It is not technically a CSA, but it is basically the same concept. So, we've been doing this for almost 2 years and it has been great! I don't have to stress about getting to the market and we are eating everything local and in season. It feels so healthy!!!
I love feeling more in tune with my surroundings, the land, growing things. . . and the composting! Oh, the composting! I am in heaven! We are greener and brighter and cleaner!
Carol Alt's primer to get started. My contention is this: how do I eat RAW and LOCAL? Umbashi plums, coconuts, tarmari sauce, flax seeds . . . not local! And not in season! It is much easier to eat local, but I can make some modifications. I’ve spent a lot more money just getting together a RAW kitchen. I can’t decide which is best.
Which brings me to the discussion of The Cans of Dinty Moore. After reading Charles Dewell's account of 40 days at sea and losing 41 pounds, living on Dinty Moore. . . Is this the reality of sailor sustenance? Really? Is that necessary? I get the sea sickness. . . . but, all that MSG? Really? Do I have to? Did they really have to drink grog to stave off the scurvy?
As for sailor food…
The food is where it is at! What do you think?
