Green Your Thanksgiving: Local Foods
Tip #1: Try Regional Recipes
Traditional Thanksgiving meals tend to favor fall produce, so it's a great time to focus on locally grown fruits and veggies. Consider adapting time-honored recipes to reflect your region's growing season and history. For a fun challenge, plan either one dish or the entire meal with ingredients grown or produced within 100 miles of your home.
