Eating locally on a bike

Print More

Eating locally, yeah, but eating locally on a bike?  Start your day with a smile with episode two of the video  “The Hungry Intern,” with Jeff Chen of High Country News pursuing lunch on two wheels. He ends up with greenhouse spinach, chicken, and a flapjack made from milled flour and eggs. Best line: “Whoa, what’s that in my egg? Oh, whatever.”  Chen is  not only eating locally, but he’s expending calories to collect the food. Episode one, breakfast, is even more hilarious, where you seriously doubt he’s got the energy to make it through the hunting and gathering.
