I started this challenge initially because I wanted to challenge myself to eat locally and I wanted a little company. I've continued because it's been fun, it's been delicious and it's had an impact on my life.
As a counselor and wellness coach I've come to believe that the more connected we are to life in general the happier and healthier we are in general. This is our relationships with other people, but also our relationship with our food.
Ultimately, I just wanted to hear good stories from good people who were eating good food grown in good places and I wanted to see all the pretty photos.
So far it's been working out great.
