Small sacrifices?

I lay there late last night, thinking about sacrifices. What would I be sacrificing if I fully committed myself to the 100 Mile Diet? You see, I'm still weighing out the pros and the cons. I nudged my boyfriend in his sleep. "Maybe we could make a rule that we only have to follow the 100 Mile rule if it's something that's available within those 100 miles. Maybe, just maybe, we don't have to give up everything," I whispered. He mumbled something inaudible, a motion of support for whatever I was rambling on about... but does that make sense? Or would that be cheating before I even started?

Here's a few of the things that I don't know how I'd live without:
olive oil
soy milk

If anyone has any ideas, please post them here.


  1. mumbled some inaudible? what

  2. If you're down to only 4 things that are on your "beyond 100 miles" list, I think you're allowed to have them...assuming they can be had anyway. Especially since I suspect you'd take great care in which brands you bought.

    I stumbled across your blog by searching for Thomas Pawlick. I just finished reading War In The Country so I was trying to learn a bit about him.

    I like what you are doing here and I share your love of bees. I am hoping to get a couple of colonies out on the family farm this year.
