While my food and product spreadsheet fills in and elongates, and the loose ends are noted,
I some times wonder if I am missing the intended premise of eating locally by searching out locally processed, manufactured, or distributed products which may in fact be made from ingredients that originate from a far distant place. It makes me think of what Michael Pollan went through to answer or resolve his dilemma as an omnivore.
Is eating locally more about raw or slow foods, or can I find everything I need to stock house and pantry from companies created, employed by, and using all New England residents and ingredients?
Am I creating lazy local living for my family?
