I try my best to be a localvore : one who eats foods grown locally whenever possible, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary. Fortunately, living in Baja is ideal for this. I can garden all year and there are great sources for locally grown and produced food. After all, how much produce eaten in the US actually comes from Mexico?
This year I decided to see just how well I am doing as a localvore by entering The Dark Days Challenge. Here is some information about it and a form if you are interested in challenging yourself. I don’t know how well I will do because there are some things that Mr. M and I like that are not grown locally, like peanuts, but we do our best!
