We've set our editorial apprentice, Rebecca Tuffin, the challenge to only eat foods where all ingredients are from Kent for a whole week.
She has now completed her fourth day - check out how day three went by clicking here.
I'm running low on supplies and have already spent quite a lot on ingredients, which means potatoes will be the main food source today.
The cravings for sugar and fat continue to grow- it's probably because I'm just a typical middle-class girl who normally has access to surplus amounts of hummus, olives and exotic takeaways.
In the modern, developed world, many of us are so used to a huge amount of choice when it comes to food, and don't think twice about the journey the ingredients have taken.
Gooseberries joined strawberries in my bowl this morning.
They are a very tart fruit, and made my eyes water a little - but at least I'm getting my vitamins.
The traditional English berries were £2.99 from Haven Farm Shop.
I drizzled a little Loose honey on them to sweeten them up which was much more palatable.
My mum said they're normally cooked up with sugar and used for a crumble - sounds good to me - love a good pudding.
Now, here is a lunch as basic as it can get - a pot of potatoes.
This time, I have moved on to some slightly smaller new potatoes from Haven Farm Shop in Sutton Valence and grown nearby.
A bag of about 10 cost £2.24 which is pretty decent I think.
At least I'm getting a bit of a detox this week.
Plenty of fruit and vegetables and just a bit of honey and fruit instead of sugar... makes me feel good to know I'm not putting loads of chemicals into my body with every mouthful.
Me and a few of my esteemed KentOnline colleagues went to the Ship & Trades at Chatham Maritime after work yesterday, and I was a little concerned I'd be drinking ale - of which I'm not really a fan.
But much to my delight, Shepherd Neame do a lager.
It was crisp, refreshing and at a reasonable £4.20 - I'll definitely be drinking it again.
When I got home, I decided to do a bit of pan throwing. By this, I mean throwing a load of food in a pan.
Carrots, green beans, potatoes, asparagus, courgette and a little bacon - a tasty medley to munch on after a lovely evening out.
I've decided to make a spot of nettle tea.
There are hundreds at the back of my garden, growing taller by the second.
I think my dad appreciated me using a few for a brew.
It smelt very earthy - like a bit of soil had come with the nettles.
Cautiously, I took my first sip.
It has a subtle flavour, much like green tea - it was okay - not a patch on English Breakfast though.
Daily updates on what Rebecca has been eating will be published on KentOnline each morning this week at 6am.
