The Sustainable Food Chart

A hungry man has been talking lately about the importance of sustainable food. This isn't a fad, or even some sort of new gimmick to force people to eat better. This is about changing habits we had no right to expect in the first place.

The facts are becoming crystal clear. Our over-reliance on fruits, vegetables, seafood and meats that must be available all year 'round is not sustainable. It is not good for the planet, it is not good for the environment, it is not good for us. And we, the professionals who talk about and share information within the food industry, must increasingly do more to push sustainable food education to the masses. Hard. This is a great way to start.

Check out this food season chart. Use it, memorize it, even make a game of it. Find or even create your own recipes that will utilize this chart to the best of its ability. Do the best you can to not only eat right, but eat responsibly.

I remember a quote that stuck with me from a Stephen King book. A character said that the brain is a muscle that can move the world. Lets use those brain cells and start thinking not only about our edible future,but finding the best wasy to keep us nourished in a smart, effective way.
