For one year, Leda Meredith – dancer, botanist, author, Brooklyn dweller – adhered to a strict diet. Not a diet to eliminate carbs or to indulge in the newest weight loss fad, but a diet that would sanctify her as an official “locavore.” Everything she ate must have been grown within 250 miles of her Park Slope home in Brooklyn.
Food security, environmental activism and farmer’s rights all motivated her new lifestyle, but she also adopted the locavore diet because, as she says, local food just tastes better and forced her to diversify her cooking.
“This was a chance to get creative in the kitchen and try new things,” Meredith said.
The diet required more planning and preparation than her previous nutritional regimen, also drawn from farmer’s markets and her own Brooklyn garden plot. The geographic restriction imposed by her new diet created unforeseen complications.
