I'm completely and totally invested in this book at the moment and every second spent away from its pages kills me.
I know a lot of us have been thinking more and more about the planet lately, especially the massive, damaging footprint we're leaving behind. Some of us are looking for ways to do something about that, treading a little less heavy and living life a bit more responsibly. The folks responsible for this book not only thought about it, but they actually did something about it.
This is the story of two people in Vancouver, BC, who made the commitment to consume only foods harvested within a 100 mile radius of their home. So far there have been many moments where I've not only been able to relate to their woes (culinary "been there, done that" woes, if you will), but I've also laughed out loud at the craziness and of it all. This is something that can be done, but it takes more than just a bit of effort. I'm envious of this experience and would love to give it a shot. The feeling of accomplishment when I look down at my dinner plate and realize that every single item came from the local farmers' market is wonderful, but I know we can do even more.
