How is this a 100 mile diet food?

I don't know much about the 100 mile diet but doesn't the product have to be completely made within a 100 mile radius?

This site claims orange juice and Bolivian coffee are made within 100 miles of Victoria. When did BC start growing oranges?

The coffees you saw are roasted locally on Salt Spring Island and Vancouver.

But the beans are grown in another country.

I thought prices at Thrifty Foods were expensive until I saw that website.

They have a distribution facility just down the street from my office.

7 bucks for 1 red cabbage?
5 bucks for 5lbs of russet potatoes?

Seriously?

The 100 mile diet doesnt really work that well in vancouver...that is, unless you want to live like a hermit and only eat washington apples and farm grown tuna. Its only if you live further down south it becomes a lot more plausible.

^Each geographic are has its advantages and disadvantages. Further south you have citrus fruits and a longer growing season, but your still lacking many staples; wheat for example.

I think there was a show about the 100 mile diet centered around Mission..

What I meant was the increasingly shitty growing and harvesting seasons north of the 49th parallel.
Wheat can be harvested in moderate temperatures (in the 20s to 30s range).

So yes, most parts in Canada will be at a disadvantage. Which means a higher cost-demand ratio, hence, "doesn't really work in Vancouver".
But that's just me though. I can never justify paying three bucks for a head of lettuce.

The irony being that something completely normal and practical a century ago, has now devolved into a hippie trend.

If I didn't live in a condo i would start a vegetable garden in my back yard, then pitch my neighbors on the 100 mile diet and sell them carrots for $15 a pound.

A century ago, people would have had no choice but to live the 100 mile diet.

I imagine they'd have gotten pretty sick of cabbage and squash by the end of winter.
