Wordless Wednesday: Local Eating

This week we asked: What does local eating look like in your family?

(Read more about healthy eating and living on our resources page.)

From Lani: ~B’s~ Love affair with corn on the cob began at a local fair! The turkey leg was pretty good too!

Lani blogs at BoobieTime.

Charise says, “There’s nothing better than picking our own strawberries from the local organic farm!”

Charise blogs at I Thought I Knew Mama.

Sara shares, “We try to eat as locally as we can.  We order beef and pork from a local farm, get local eggs, and whenever we can we get local produce from our garden, farmers’ market, or CSA.  This is a picture of one of last year’s CSA hauls.  I can’t wait for this year’s season to start!”

Sara blogs at This Mom Loves.

From Jennifer: “Sydney’s favorite local eatery.  No matter where in the world we are.”

Jennifer blogs at Our Muddy Boots.

From Leona: Let them grow food.  Local, organic and healthy!

Leona, who believes in eating local by teaching children to grow food, blogs at My Healthy Green Family.

From Melissa: Aelyn (22 months) taste testing the biodynamic strawberries at the farmers market.

Melissa blogs at Simply Whimsy.

From Melissa at Vibrant Wanderings: Annabelle is so excited about this freshly picked bell pepper that she can’t decide whether to eat it now or call a friend and invite them over first!

From Lauren at Hobo Mama: “There’s nothing more local than eating from your own garden. Four-year-old Mikko’s been helping us grow, wash, and cook our garden bounty since he was a baby.”

Joella says, “Delilah snacks on a locally grown sugar snap pea at the Farmer’s Market. By shopping at the Farmer’s Market, we get lots of fresh, local produce while supporting our local farmers!”

Joella blogs at Fine and Fair.


From Chuck: “My Daughters and I at St. Brigid’s Farms visiting the Artisanal Berkshires.”

“The end result on our counter.”

Chuck blogs at No More Neo.

Shannon shares, “Our good friend, Geneson, head chef at The Grange, a restaurant that sources most of their food from local growers.”

Shannon blogs at Pineapples and Artichokes.

    Yum! I’m getting hungry just looking at these photos of such delicious, local eats! The little ones in the photos are simply adorable, too. Another great WW at NPN!

    The girls and I are always happy when we’re selected for Wordless Wednesday. Eating as locally and sustainable as we can is a continuous goal in our house, and getting to know our farmers and the people who provide our food is always a joy.

    Great pics! The breastfeeding one is perfect! If I had thought of that I might have submitted a photo, too.

    And how awesome to have a restaurant that sources their food locally. I think we have at least one of those around here, but I think they’re pricey.
