During the month of August we’ve begun trying to eat only locally grown foods, and I very quickly realized how much I was going to miss our supermarkets. It seemed that I was in the van every couple of days looking for for food.
It’s such a foreign thing to have to drive multiple places while buying groceries when I’m used to finding everything I need from just one store. And I can even buy paint and clothes and tools there too.
One week in to our Eat Local challenge and I began thinking that we were going to have to win the lotto to fund my gas tank. But after two weeks now, I’ve finally found a few tips that have drastically reduced both my time spent and miles driven.
