The Struggle to Eat Local, Gemelli's Returns, More

NOLA? The Gambit's Alejandro De Los Rios is documenting his ups and downs of trying to eat only locally-sourced foods during the 30 Day Eat Local Challenge, and in his latest entry writes, "anyone participating in the challenge knows that it's less about making sure everything you eat is local and more about just changing your mindset as a consumer."
