To follow the 100 Mile Diet, you must eat food raised locally and produced within a 100-mile radius of your home. “The 100-Mile Diet struck a deeper chord than anyone could have predicted, inspiring thousands of individuals, and even whole communities, to change the way they eat, according 100MileDiet. Org
J. B. McKinnon and Alisa Smith created the 100 Mile Diet in 2005 as an experiment in eating freshly produced local foods. They followed the diet for one year to learn where food comes from, see how it affected them and to inspire others to follow a similar eating plan.
“Locally raised and produced food has been called” the new organic “— better tasting, better for the environment, better for local economies, and better for your health, says 100MileDiet. Org. The food is fresh, which gives it a better taste . locally grown products probably do not contain pesticides or unhealthy additives. another benefit is the social connection that you develop with farmers in the community.
This diet can be difficult to follow because certain foods such as wheat can not be commonly grown in your community. In addition, it is more realistic to follow the diet generally than rigid.
