She’s right in that it’s probably a combination of factors. I wrote something about my beef with the 100-mile diet. Sad to say my consumer choices concerning food miles aren’t exactly inspiring. Not being from Canada, I think a lot of people would try to stick to their diets as close to home as possible, if not adapting a part of it. Yes, my mom too scraps off mold… and she’s the kind of woman who will put anything in her basket if it’s fresh and cheap. Growing up, she’s like “eh there wasn’t such a thing as packaging when it came to food. Most things weren’t preserved or wrapped at all!”
