This is hard to do but I think admission is a good starting point. That being said...Hi. My name is Daniel and I am addicted to BLT's. Like any addict I have some points to bring up in my defense and to clarify my situation.
First, for me, it's more about the T than the B & the L. (Don't get all crazy on me "bacon people")
I don't eat tomatoes all year long in anticipation of the first ripe tomato coming off our farm field. My cravings were particularly tough this summer because most tomato crops were damaged from the heavy rains. Our vines were delayed and we didn't have a lovely, ripe tomato until July 29. There were definitely several occasions where i almost cracked and tried some subpar product.
Once the tomatoes begin producing, my cravings don't just grow in to addiction. No, I immediately hit rock-bottom for the length of the tomato season. That's about 6 weeks of hardcore, daily over-indulgence. When i run out of tomatoes, my detox begins.
Lastly, I BLT at least once a day. Sometimes, if i'm feeling crazy, two or even three times in one day.
Here are some easy ways to get you started...
1. Eat Local When You Eat Out - Find restaurants that source food locally.
2. Shop At Your Local Farmers Market - Find a Farmer's Market in your area to purchase seasonal produce.
3. Have Others Cook For You - Host a local foods potluck dinner. A fun way to learn new recipes and spend time with friends.
4. Freeze More Food - Freezing is one of the easiest ways to preserve seasonal berries and vegetables to enjoy all year.
