Starting in September, we're going to be taking part in the 2011 Locavore Challenge sponsored by NOFA-NY. We chose to take on the Meal Sized Challenge and are already gearing up for the month! We feel this is important to our goals and to this blog, because a lot of our life since taking Financial Peace University has been about taking control and being better stewards of what God has given to us. We already do many of these things and have found them cost-effective and our well-being has been positively affected by these choices. As we've said before: it's not about how much you make, it's about how you choose to use it.
Here are some things to be looking for here on Debt Free American Road Trip:
- Book reviews on titles including Simply in Season, The World at Your Table (written by a family friend), and In Defense of Food among other articles and books.
- Recipes we've tried using foods sourced within 250 miles from home.
- Menus and financial plans for paying for more local and organic foods.
- Ways that this project has helped us with our financial and personal goals
