Here’s what I’ve been reading this week. Lots of good stuff.
Most Fast-Food Per Person and Other Food Facts [Daily Yonder] – some cool maps of eating habits across the U.S.
How Eating Grass-Fed Beef Could Help Fight Climate Change [TIME] – that’s as self-explanatory a title as you can get.
Behind the Organic Pasture Rule at the USDA [Chewswise] – a blog by the author of Organic, Inc.
The Great Grocery Smackdown [The Atlantic] – on buying organic at…Walmart? Plus a blind cookoff between Walmart and Whole Foods. Some interesting results…
The Spotless Garden [New York Times] – a great article about backyard and basement aquaponics systems and the ‘otherworldly yields’ from this type of growing. ‘It is either a glimpse into the future of food growing or a very strange hobby — possibly both.’
