Rhonda from Down to Earth started this challenge.
She wrote..."I am going to challenge everyone here to eat one meal a week that is either organic or local or free range and pasture fed."
I encourage you to pop over to her blog to read the entire post.
This is a topic that I am very passionate about.
My husband and I have been slowly making changes to get all chemicals and preservatives out of our lives and I think this challenge will be fun.
It amazes me that even though we live here in the "heartland", it is very challenging to find local good quality meat and dairy in our area. I have been searching to find local organic but am having a hard time. Right now we get our grass fed beef when we visit my Mom's town which is about 100 miles away. We take a cooler and stock up. We don't drink milk so that isn't an issue but I would love to have some local cheese, a good source for seafood and organic chicken.
So I started my part of this challenge last night. We had meatloaf...made with grass fed beef and all of my home grown veggies and herbs, organic mashed potatoes, local corn on the cob and home made bread. It was delicious.
