Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and many of us are already planning to travel in order to spend the holiday with friends, family, and loved ones. But just because you’re going to rack up some miles doesn’t mean your meal has to. In fact, this Thanksgiving, make sure that your food doesn’t travel more miles than you do, by committing to find and cook with as many local ingredients as possible. Maybe it will be local sage from your own herb garden, or local sweet potatoes from your farmers market, or a local turkey from a nearby farm. You’re not just doing something good for your environment and economy, you are treating yourself to the most delicious and nutritious food possible. Happy Holidays!
