Project Best Life: Episode 4: Becoming a Locavore

Wanting locally-owned businesses to be around on the other side of this global pandemic is one compelling reason to become a locavore—a term coined by Jessica Prentice in 2005 to promote the practice of eating a diet consisting of food harvested within a 100 mile radius.

But there are a host of other, just as important reasons, to pay close attention to where our food comes from and to make a commitment to eating local food as much as possible.

What are some of those reasons? What are the benefits? What does “local” even mean?

These are some of questions posed when Ashley Snowden of Project Best Life visits a few local farms and farmers to talk about their role in the local food economy, their offering, and how eating and food shopping with purpose and a local focus can help us, and our community, live our best lives.

Episode Four of this sponsored series. Produced in partnership with and exclusively for Project Best Life to empower people to take control of their lives, and take tangible steps to be their healthiest and happiest selves.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
