not to be a debbie downer or anything, but i have to suggest this fantastic article from NY Magazine about dining with a conscience.
it lays out some serious concerns over our most common foods, whether those concerns deal with a food's carbon footprint, its devastating effect on our environment, or just health concerns for people who eat them.
it doesn't stop there, though. the authors suggest better alternatives, whether they be replacement foods, locally-grown brands, or tips on how and when to eat certain foods.
