This man from America decided to eat nothing more than what he grows or forages himself, for a year.
A year ago, Rob Greenfield embarked on quite a big challenge, only eating what he grows in his garden, what he catches when he goes fishing or what he finds in the wilderness for a whole year, as various media sources around the world have reported.
‘For one year, I will grow and forage 100% of my food. That means no grocery stores, no restaurants and not even taking a nibble of a cookie or sip of beer at a party for an entire year,’ he explained on the website he created for his challenge. Instead, on the menu for him is venison with garlic, pepper, coriander, dill and coconut milk.
From the very start, this 33-year-old activist has been living in the house with a garden that he owns in Orlando, in the United States.
He has been documenting his experiences on his YouTube channel with one goal in mind: to inspire people to live more simply.
‘Through this project, I am out to wake people up to the issues with our globalised, industrialised food system and inspire and help them to start growing even just a little bit of their own food. This project isn’t about being self-sufficient. It is about creating a community with food sovereignty,’ he explained.
Will he succeed in his challenge? There’s a good chance since it finishes on 10th November.
