Living the 100-Mile Diet in New York City

Living the 100-Mile Diet in New York City

Health and environment writer Susan Cosier shares her experiences eating a 100-mile diet. She highlights not only the benefits of the 100-mile diet, but many of the difficulties one might expect to find — such as finding local staples, like dairy products, in urban areas like New York City, where she is based. Moreover, many grocers dont advertise their products' origins, making it difficult to determine how far an item is coming from, let alone if its from within 100 miles.

I wonder how the experience of food gathering differs for folks who are vegan?
