Locavore

If for some incredible reason you have not been aware of the local food movement then you may find this word shocking.

Locavore is the New Oxford American Dictionary 2007 Word of the Year.  It refers to persons who only eat foods produced or grown within a 100 mile radius.  It’s a hot word and one you will be hearing more about.  Check out these two sites.

Although Locavore is a fascinating word this post might have been quite different if one of the runner up words won the honored title of 2007 Word of the Year.  For instance………

Cougar:  an older woman who romantically pursues younger men.  :)

On a more serious note, I wonder what low income, inner city families might think of this word.  After all, do they even have a choice?
