Welcome to Local Okra!

Hi, everyone!  Thanks for stopping by.  I have been wanting to do a food photography blog for a long time and I finally have the motivation to do it.  I always thought it would need a theme or have something interesting to say and not just be a bunch of "food porn."  It was Tore who inspired the idea behind Local Okra.  

For the past several years Tore and I have been vegetarians (3 years for me and 6 for him). Well, we actually ate seafood here and there as well, but no meat whatsoever.  We have always tried to cook/eat what's healthy for us and the world in general, but very recently our food philosophy has changed to include local, organic and sustainable meat.  So check back here for recipes, photos, and philosophical rambling.
