Eating locally...spring/summer meals...

So this year I am going to try to eat locally, as much as possible.    And last night's dinner was an example.

I had a radish salad, adapted lightly from Local Flavors, by Deborah Madison.   Sliced radishes, arugula, mixed lettuce, chives, and local cheese.    With a roasted chicken (from the same people who made the cheese).  And dessert?  Yogurt (with cherry jam).  And I realised upon finishing, the whole meal was local food, apart from the cherry jam.

The difficult thing about trying to eat locally is carbs.   Because being gluten-free and getting healthy carbs can be a challenge...and the gluten-free stuff generally comes from a distance.    So I'll never be a true locavore because I need my carbs!
