And so it begins – 100 mile living

Nick and I have pondered, planned, and yes, even perspired some as we looked at just how Lent would play out for us and how the spiritual nature of Lent would blend with our 100 Mile plan.

Some out of region items will need to be included such as a few supplements, medications, etc.  However, as I looked at how we would make this work I also realized that we are doing this as a Lenten practice so there will be an element of thinking this is hard (and it will be) and giving up (salty and sweet quick trips to the store), and impulse purchases.

Tomorrow we will be heading up valley and west to Forest Cove Farm and Country Market to purchase some micro greens and other wonderful local veggies. Then as we journey home we’ll stop in at Brums Dairy.

How does this become a Lenten Practice?  Good question.  We’ve looked at how we support our local communities and consume better products.  As we track how many times we choose not to purchase those items that are not really good for us,we will share the savings with the local food bank here in Denbigh.

Also, 100 Mile Living moves beyond food to not purchasing more stuff. So for my fiber friends that means I won’t be shopping on your websites or taking a walk through Michaels just because I can. (impulse purchases can be tough to control).

Throughout Lent I will be focusing on what is important in my life: family and friends, good food, and wasting less. (time and resources)

Do you have a focus for Lent this year?
