What's Hot What's Not
What's HOT: Proudly telling your new eco-friendly boyfriend that you are a locavore and live to support the local farmers.
What's NOT: Lying to your new eco-friendly boyfriend that you are a locavore when you have a pantry of pricey imported food.
Being a locavore means you consciously center your diet on food grown within a 100-mile radius of your locale, supporting local farmers and reducing the carbon footprint created by importing food from outside your area. Being eco-friendly is hands-down hot. "The local food trend will continue to grow as people are ever more aware of the fuel efficiency of buying local and the superior nutrition quality of something that doesn't have to travel miles and miles to arrive in your grocery cart," says registered dietician Molly Morgan, author of Choose Right Supermarket Shopping Guide
and owner of Creative Nutrition Solutions.
