2014 Weekly Challenge #26: Eat LOCAL!

 

You hear it all the time: Eat Local! But why?

Here are 8 reasons to eat local foods (taken from about.com):

1. Local Foods Are Fresher (and Taste Better)

Food that was picked within the last few days tastes way better than food that was picked (unripened) and trucked thousands of miles to get to you. And fresh food lasts longer, too.

2. Local Foods Are Seasonal (and Taste Better)

In Season- Asparagus

In Season- Asparagus

This week I wanted to feature the beautiful and healthy veggie- asparagus!  A wonderful source of antioxidants, plus fiber and folate, asparagus is considered a disease-fighting veggie.  It's been available in our stores and farmer's markets for about a month, get some now before the supply dwindles and becomes more expensive.

Most of the time I fix asparagus on the grill; I trim the end, place them in a dish or a zipper bag, drizzle with balsamic vinegar, and sprinkle with a combo of salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Then when I've nearly finished grilling whatever protein we are having, I place the asparagus on and let them grill a couple minutes, gently roll them to get the other side grilled and that's all!
