I’ve been reading Barbara Kingsolver’s new book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. While the book in no way promotes a raw, vegan diet, there is so much interesting information about eating in a way that is helpful to the planet. In her terms, this means eating locally instead of food logging thousands of miles to get to your plate. And, I’m all for that. However, I am having a difficult time thinking about how to take this philosophy in with raw foodism (I live in Portland, Oregon). This would mean that so many of my mainstays are out of the question most of the time like bananas, coconut and avocado. Besides moving to a more tropical climate, any suggestions? Are any of you eating raw out of your home gardens or successfully eating raw with local, seasonal produce?
