The thing we learnt from this week, is it is easy to be half way there…but moving beyond that requires time and sleuthing. You can get seasonal local organic fruit and veg delivered, you can source eggs (or have your own chooks) fairly easily, and beard and milk are OK if you look around. it is the multitude of other stuff that is difficult. All those items you get easily from the supermarket are harder to source elsewhere, and if anything has more than a few ingredients trying to track down where everything comes from verges on impossible. Our week was OK, but I think the key is to be organised and to plan, which was something we definately did not do! It has made us more aware of thinking about all the ingredients, which is a good thing. The big thing is, what do you do when you go out to eat? I know from working in food shops myself, that if the staff are busy and you are asking questions, they will tell you what you want to hear as it is easier for them.
