Needless to say, we didn't come prepared for a wet boat ride out into the rough bay as the setting sun was bringing a chill to the island... but to experience the ancient Salish Tribe art of reefnet fishing, that's where we found ourselves, cameras and notebooks in hand.
You want to feed your family right like a good locavore should, but nutrition labels are confusing, fast food is ubiquitous, and kids hate everything. (Adorably so, but still.) One possible solution: buy a whole cow from a rancher and feed your family on that for a year.

As the state thirstily sucks groundwater from underground aquifers, especially to keep its massive agriculture industry operational, the people up above are feeling the ramifications and are beginning to crack -- literally -- under the pressure.
In 2012, Megan Kimble, food writer and editor of Edible Baja Arizona, challenged herself to spend a year eating nothing but unprocessed food. Then, she wrote a book about it.
