How Do I Eat Green?

Enjoy Your Food

The more informed you become, the easier it is to forget that food is a source of pleasure as well as nourishment. "It's a natural tendency when you're trying to eat right to get too cerebral -- and sometimes a little too strict," says Jesse Ziff Cool, author of Simply Organic and a restaurateur in Menlo Park, California, who has been dedicated to sustainable agriculture and cuisine for more than 33 years. "I've seen it happen often enough, and the people who get a bit fascistic aren't exactly happy." Her advice is to give yourself credit for the eco-conscious choices you do make. A good point, since it's not really feasible for most of us to go all green, all the time, right now. "If you want that In-N-Out burger, you should go ahead and eat it every once in a while," adds Ziff.

Hopefully, this piece has prompted you to recognize that all your choices -- of restaurants, of groceries, heck, even of the bags you carry them home in -- can make an impact.

I agree with both of you! Raising animals for food uses unheard of amounts of the planets resources so this is not something you can ignore if you truly care about the planet! Don't believe me? Please research this! And alexkoy- being a vegetarian is a great start but if you're doing it because you care about animals then you should definitely consider transitioning in a vegan, the completely cruelty-free decision! Let's all show God's earth and animals the respect they deserve!
