Locavore Diet

While most food travels 1,300 to 2,000 miles before it arrives at your table, the locavore diet focuses on foods produced within 100 miles of where you live. Finding fresh food at farmers markets, family farms, local bakeries, food co-ops, community supported agriculture or your own garden will reduce your carbon footprint and your waistline.
