The 100-Mile Diet Book Inspires Reality TV
The 100-Mile Challenge, a six part series based on the bestselling book The 100-Mile Diet: A Year of Local Eating by James MacKinnon and Alisa Smith is scheduled to air on Food Network Canada starting Sunday, April 5 at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET.
The program follows six families in Mission, BC as they spend 100 days completely living the 100-Mile Diet. Authors MacKinnon and Smith were on hand as guides.
Interestingly MacKinnon noted, “[The families] couldn’t get their kids to eat spinach from the store, but when they grew it they ate it.”
Parents, get ready to plant!
