The Fife Diet

The idea started in Canada, and now it's been adopted by a family in Scotland, where people are more conscious than we here in the US about the consequences for global warming of air-freighting strawberries between hemispheres: eat only food grown within 100 miles of one's home. If it can be done in Scotland--in the winter!--it ought to be possible here in NYC. Especially with the help of a large freezer and some planning ahead during the summer months. I'm going to have to try to get the family on board.
