I (sort of) have a plan

My Eating Local Manifesto:

1. Eat only vegetables, fruits, meat, cheese,dairy, poultry, meat and fish raised or grown within
a 250 mi radius of Manchester, NH.
2. To learn more about the sources of the
grains I eat.
3. Drink coffee only from local roasters
4. Drink Tap Water.
5. Buy as much food as possible from
farmer's markets
6. When I eat out, pick restaurants known
to source most of their food locally if possible.
7. Eat out less, cook home more.

Coffee (though will only purchase from local roasters)
broccoli - because I love it. once a week.
meals prepared by others
meals prepared for houseguests
food purchased prior to 10/1/09 if it will go bad unless eaten.


Eggs: Local farmers market, A-market or Nellie's Nest

Seafood: fresh available in Boston and Portland, can be frozen. Eat seafood at least 3 x week

Butter: Kates Handmade Butter

Dairy: Local farmers market, Stonyfield Farms, Cabot Creamery
Chicken/Meat: A-Market, Local farmers market

Vegetables/fruits - Local Farmers Market, A-Market, Macks apples

Coffee: Green Mountain or New England Coffee. Also see what A-Market has

Alcohol: Local beer available

Bread: bake my own whenever possible, or only buy local

Pasta: only homemade

Flour: no local sources, will purchase only King Arthur

There may be more to add, but I am breathing a BIG sigh of relief that I am in better shape than I thought.

I reserve the right to step out of this challenge if it compromises my commitment to losing weight and exercising!
