LOCAVORE Word of the Year in 2007

I received the following in an email today. I love to share such interesting and productive ideas to the world on the internet. It is something to think about, smile at our new word and maybe make plans to make our 2008 a year to ingest some healthy eating habits.

In this plate of food I see the entire Universe supporting our existence. Locavore is 2007's word of the year. The New Oxford American Dictionary chose locavore, a person who seeks out locally produced food, as its word of the year.

The local foods movement is gaining momentum as people discover that the best-tasting and most sustainable choices are foods that are fresh, seasonal, and grown close to home. Some locavores draw inspiration from:

Others just follow their taste buds to farmers' markets, community supported agriculture programs, and community gardens. Check out: <http://ucsaction.org/ct/GdwiOOd1bYAF/ Local Harvest to find sustainably grown food near you, and make a New Year's Resolution to be a locavore in 2008! This article was apparently written by: Thanks Margaret for sharing.
