When Alisa Smith and James MacKinnon learned that the average ingredient in a North American meal travels miles from farm to plate they decided to launch a simple experiment to reconnect with the people and places that produced what they ate For one year they would only consume food that came from within a mile radius of their Vancouver apartment The Mile Diet was born .

The couple s discoveries sometimes shook their resolve It would be a year without sugar Cheerios olive oil rice Pizza Pops beer and much much more Yet local eating has turned out to be a life lesson in pleasures that are always close at hand They met the revolutionary farmers and modern day hunter gatherers who are changing the way we think about food They got personal with issues ranging from global economics to biodiversity They called on the wisdom of grandmothers and immersed themselves in the seasons They discovered a host of new flavours from gooseberry wine to sunchokes to turnip sandwiches foods that they never would have guessed were on their doorstep .

The Mile Diet struck a deeper chord than anyone could have predicted attracting media and grassroots interest that spanned the globe The b Mile Diet A Year of Local Eating b tells the full story from the insights to the kitchen disasters as the authors transform from megamart shoppers to self sufficient urban pioneers The Mile Diet is a pathway home for anybody anywhere .

i Call me naive but I never knew that flour would be struck from our Mile Diet Wheat products are just so ubiquitous the staff of life that I had hazily imagined the stuff must be grown everywhere But of course I had never seen a field of wheat anywhere close to Vancouver and my mental images of late afternoon light falling on golden fields of grain were all from my childhood on the Canadian prairies What I was able to find was Anita s Organic Grain amp Flour Mill about miles up the Fraser River valley I called and learned that Anita s nearest grain suppliers were at least miles away by road She sounded sorry for me Would it be a year until I tasted a pie i From b The Mile Diet by Alisa Smith, J.B. MacKinnon
