I have been thinking a lot about local, seasonal eating recently. Who am I kidding? It is all consuming, all of the time 🙂 I like to think that we could easily eat an all local diet if we had the funds to support that…or the garden! But, when I think about local foods, there are a few things missing that I love and would make me happier overall. Without further ado, my top ten non-local foods that I probably will continue to buy even though there is no possible way to grow these in my cold climate…well…unless there was no way at all to get them…but I am not thinking about that right now!
1. good quality extra virgin olive oil
4. spices (lumping these all together)
When I write it down like that, it makes me realize that perhaps I am a little concerned about scurvy… 🙂
What about you? What would your top ten be? Or could you make do with fewer?
