8 Easy Ways to Eat Sustainably

  1. Shop at the greenmarkets as much as possible.
  2. Buy only what foods are in season. (Tom: “Don’t create a demand for strawberries in winter!”)
  3. Eschew processed foods. (Tom: “Wage war with the supermarket.”)
  4. Eat what has been produced within 100 miles of where you live or vacation. (Dan: “You’re in pursuit of flavor. Go directly to the source.”)
  5. Take yourself and your children to be educated at a nearby farm.
  6. Support environmentally-conscious restaurants, and subsequently the farms they work with.
  7. The ultimate sustainable experience: Attend a farm-to-table feast in the middle of a farm. Good sources: Outstanding in the Field or Sustenance on the Farm
  8. Find sustainable reminders: Pick up a copy of Edible magazine and read it, cover to cover.
