This week marks the Salt Lake City Eat Local Challenge!
I am pretty sure that other cities have this challenge as well, but usually a bit earlier in the growing season. I signed our family up for the challenge this year, attempting to use 75% or more local ingredients (mostly produce) in our dishes this week. With our community garden in full swing, I don't think this should be too difficult. In fact, the only thing I've really done differently is buy a different brand of milk (non-organic, but from a local dairy claiming to use no added hormones/antibiotics).
So here's our thought for the week ahead: Let's eat local! If not locally grown, then let's go for local small business.
Good luck to us - follow along to see how we do!
