New Book Eat Local for Less Demystifies
Washington, DC (November 2014) — Many people today are fed up with the flavorless, unhealthful, and environment-damaging foods peddled to them by the industrial agriculture system. But consumers are discovering a whole other food system that has been quietly producing delicious food in ways that not only don’t wreck any ecosystems but actually improve some of them. These are the foods lovingly produced by small-scale farmers and family-run cottage businesses, not corporations. They’re made in small quantities by people who cherish their land and work hard to keep it healthy.
Millions more Americans would love to eat this bounty, but many worry that eating fresh, local food is too difficult or expensive. All they need is a boost in confidence—and a little practical know-how.
In Eat Local for Less, Julie Castillo offers down-to-earth advice on finding, buying, growing, and preparing great food from local sources without breaking the bank. A great resource for anyone concerned about animal welfare, economic fair play, family cohesion, community wellbeing, or the impact of human activity on the environment, Eat Local for Less shows readers how to bring what’s on their plates in line with what’s in their hearts.
“I heard dozens of voices, on TV, radio, and the Internet, grumbling that local organic food was much more expensive, and not one voice suggesting that it could be cheaper,” Castillo said. “I decided to be that one voice.”
