In the summer and fall months I’m lucky enough to enjoy food that comes from within a few miles of where I live. This makes me a little biased; less transportation and pollution and my money staying here to support local agriculture wins out on all the criteria listed above.
Sometimes bias necessitates a blindfold and a buddy, so you’re really rating the food and not just a preference (for local, in my case). I’m so proud of our local Western Colorado food that I even made some watercolor paintings of food-related animals and items. Check them out in the Shoppe.
Don’t be afraid to taste test for other attributes! Here are some ideas:
- Organic vs non-organic
- Fresh vs frozen
- Home-cooked vs processed
- A flight of beer – dark, light, amber, etc.
I can’t wait to see your results! Please share them with us all in the comments below.
