2012 NY Locavore Challenge: Day 7

I officially made it through the first week of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York's (NOFA-NY) 2012 Locavore Challenge. Yesterday, day 7, I really brought my A-game...I made three meals from scratch using primarily local ingredients, and they were amazing.

Yesterday's Challenge: Create a Locavore Blog or Journal
Obviously, this wasn't much of a challenge for me! But I have thought a bit lately about how I want to use this blog to not only inspire other people to eat more locally, but to also chronicle my own journey to become even more of a locavore.

Yesterday's Food: Acorn Squash
I love acorn squash, and I can't wait to get the first of it from our CSA. When I do, I'll be sure to post my fantastic squash soup recipe that I make with a whole variety of winter squash, not just acorn!

Yesterday I:
  • Ate/drank local eggs, milk, cheddar, onions, sweet red peppers, potatoes, peaches, grape tomatoes, salad greens, arugula and fresh mozzarella (11 different foods).
  • Found olive oil grown/made in California...there's no way for me to get local olive oil, but if I can't get local, the next best thing is to get sustainably produced oil from olives grown in the USA!
Yesterday was great, and today was even better...I can't wait to tell you all about it in my next post!
