2012 NY Locavore Challenge: Day 6

Yesterday was the sixth day of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York's (NOFA-NY) 2012 Locavore Challenge. It started off great...I made an awesome breakfast and lunch almost entirely with my purchases from the farmers market and my CSA share, and I had a fantastic dinner planned. And then I got a migraine, and all my plans went down the drain.

I'm not gonna beat myself up about it. I'm a locavore and a migraineur, and I need to figure out a way to ensure that I have good local food to eat even when I'm too ill to cook. I need to plan ahead for migraine days, making meals out of local ingredients and freezing them, so that my wonderful husband Ed can take over dinner duty with I'm not feeling well (instead of me sending him out for pizza like I did last night.)

Yesterday's Challenge: Ask your Local Politician and/or Celebrity to Take the Challenge
Migraine brain prevented me from trying to figure out how to get started with this...I hope to get around to it this weekend...will keep you posted!

Yesterday's Food: Greens
I didn't cook any greens yesterday (I HAD planned on making some lovely Swiss chard for dinner...oh well). If you need a good recipe for greens, I'd suggest my Quiche with Golden Beet Greens and Feta recipe (you can substitute whatever greens you'd like for the beet greens!)

Yesterday I:
  • Ate/drank local milk, eggs, cheddar, potatoes, sweet red pepper, onions, tomatoes, garlic, bell pepper, fresh mozzarella, purple basil, parsley, arugula, salad greens, peaches and beer (14 different foods).
