Our food is so local, it isn't even funny. Coming from the US where local is such a big trend right now, this makes me laugh. Half of the fruit we get is picked from the trees that line our streets. I just looked out the back window of our house and noticed that the factory that makes our bread/crackers/pasta is literally in our back yard. Veggies and other fruits are local. Meat is local. I've rarely picked up a packaged item at the store and not seen our state listed as the origin. And we live in a small state. It is amazing, and I think we are much healthier because of this. Brazil is so funny. There are so many things wrong, but this is something that is so so right!
