My Dinner in Miles

21 Jul

I started thinking about how many miles the ingredients in my dinner had to travel to get to my dinner plate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I didn’t think it would be too many considering a couple of the ingredients were from my garden. Then I looked at the origin of my orange pepper — Chile! That pepper had to come 5400 miles to my plate — so much for eating foods close to the source.
