Traveling with a cooler of road food is a way of life for the locavore. I made a nice lunch, but in preparation for the #OutgrowMonsanto event I found myself far away from home and the challenge became more challenging. Video below highlights a couple fabulous little plants, Jamaican vervain and purslane, which can be found in so many of our backyards here in Hawai’i.
Here’s a list of what I ate during this 6th day of 100% local foods.
SF = Savage Farms (my place!)
avocado, spring onions, lemon juice, salt.
papaya (SF), lime juice (SF).
soup – purslane (SF), popolo berries (SF), cauliflower, tomato (SF), burdock root, coconut milk, mac nut oil, garlic, ginger, turmeric, kaffir lime leaves (SF), curry leaves (SF), coriander seeds (SF), salt.
avocado, tomato (SF), spring onion, lime juice (SF).
bananas, mac nuts, avocado, cacao nibs, one of my fellow Babes Against Biotech’s and #projectlocavore organizer Lauryn Rego’s meatballs, a whole bunch of snacks I can’t even remember right now!
