Alaska Food Challenge Pledge

July 9, 2011

This is the pledge that Randy and I came up with for this year of eating locally:

We pledge to:

Eat Alaskan-grown food to the greatest extent possible for one year beginning June 21, 2011.
Increase our knowledge of native Alaskan plants to increase the amount of food acquired through foraging.
Learn to replace foods regularly purchased from outside by identifying foods in Alaska that comprise a viable substitute.
Learn the nutritional composition of these local food to verify the diet is healthy and sustainable.
Exceptions include condiments, herbs and spices not available in Alaska, coffee, maple syrup, oils (when we can’t use local butter as a replacement) and sugar (where we can’t use local honey as a replacement).
