Hi everyone! I was vegan for a bit but slipped into vegetarianism through eating only local eggs and some local cheese. However, I went to a naturopath and got a food intolerance test because my skin has been breaking out forever, and it turns out I have a very high intolerance to eggs AND dairy! Anyway, I'm back on the vegan bandwagon which is actually nice because I feel better already after 2 months...but I was wondering if anyone has advice on being a vegan locavore? I feel very comfortable with eating vegan and would like to reduce my carbon footprint further by eating as much local food as possible. I already go to farmers markets in the spring/summer and buy local sauces from my health food store, but I want to do more. I don't mind doing without certain foods as long as I'm getting enough nutrition. I live in upstate NY...Anyone know of some good websites or have advice for canning/preserving things? Or do you know what kind of beans and grains grow up here? NY has plenty of great veggies, but I need lots of denser food as well because I work out a lot and have a hefty appetite. Any suggestions on how to be a vegan locavore are welcome. I'm not sure a vegan in upstate NY can be 100% locavore, but I'd like to do as much as I can! Thanks for all your help guys!
