This day, that day, which day? How about everyday.

13 May

We all know about Earth Day, right?  We all know about 100 days of Real Food.  What about 21 days?  The next 21 days starting on Friday can be the

One thing.  Buy local butter that in a major grocery store.  If you buy it in the co-op where it always is, that is great as well, but this post is probably not for you. If you choose to buy local butter in a large store that puts it right next to the large format-commodity milk butters, then you are sending a message to the buyers of the store that you support that product and they will have to buy more…ok, you get where I am going with this, right?  If you are looking for something that you can do to get going on local food, sustainable food, why not start with BUTTER!   The idea is that if you start with one ingredient and commit to that year round, that will start something.  You will think every time you go for that butter, that you are “voting with your fork” .

So, think about this on Friday and come up with a plan to start small. Food Revolution Day is Friday.
