Eat A Local Feast For Thanksgiving!

Let's get back to our roots this Thanksgiving...

We know that the Pilgrims did not truck food in from thousands or even hundreds of miles away for their feast. It was obviously not possible for that to happen. Why can't we eat locally grown foods for our Thanksgiving meal? The 100 Mile Diet is doing a Thanksgiving special this year. You can go to their site, type in your zip code and find out local foods for Thanksgiving.

To me, this is great because the carbon dioxide emissions from transporting turkeys or what have you across the country are not entering our atmosphere. The produce should also be cheaper because it didn't have to be hauled in from who knows where.

Whether you eat locally or globally, have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
