Definition of 100 Mile Diet

The 100-mile diet has been taken on as a personal challenge by local food enthusiasts and has popularized the concept of eating only seasonally appropriate and regional foods. It is the concept of eating only foods that are grown or produced within a 100-mile radius of one’s home, requiring the practitioner to develop a deep awareness of where each of his or her meals is coming from. It can dramatically reduce an individual’s carbon footprint since the foods do not need to be transported long distances to reach the plate.
