Week 3 (14 weeks of mini-pledges)
All meat consumed this week will be locally raised (within 100-miles of your hometown). Meat consumption will also be limited to 3 – 4 servings this week, and when it is eaten meat will not be presented as the “focal point” of the meal. Instead meat will be treated as a side item or simply used to help flavor a dish.
This week will be another fairly easy week as far as “cutting” anything out goes. We don’t eat much meat in our house as my daughter is a vegetarian although we do enjoy some fish based meals occasionally. I do get chicken breast, bacon, and ham to make different meals for my son who enjoys meat but not a lot as a. it’s expensive and b. I’m not one for making different meals for everyone.
I don’t know where to source locally meat that is raised with 160km (100 miles) from our home. I will check with the butcher next time I purchase meat to find out where they get their meat from. I will also be more conscious about where the meat has come from when I’m looking in the grocery store.
