On Food

It makes us happy, it keeps us healthy (if we eat the right things in the right amounts), it's pretty important, and it's the subject of the 2011 Blog Action Day - that's right Food!

I don't have a lot to say today on the subject, who are we kidding, I love food and have a lot to say and plenty of opinions.  Instead of rambling on and on about food though I'm going to share a couple of articles on seafood issues that have been bouncing around my to share list for a while now.  Most of these will make you think a bit, keep in mind that fishing and eating fish are complicated issues these days and no one article is ever going to give you all the info that you need or want.

Generally speaking my advice is to try to get closer to your food.  Where it comes from, who grows / raises / catches it, and how you prepare it.  Which sort of translates to stay away from overly processed stuff.

Talking Salmon - Good Food World takes a look at Alaskan Salmon fisheries and Pacific Northwest seafood retailers.

A Little Piece of Maine - Earth Justice put together a nice story on Port Clyde, ME one of the leaders in the community supported fishery movement.

To Eat or Not to Eat - A great back and forth from that I've only skimmed among a bunch of leading fisheries experts and researchers, it does get pretty wonky so be warned.

Every Last Bite - Four Fish author Paul Greenberg tells of making the most of his cod using an old Marcella recipe in the NYT.

That'll give you something to chew on for a while (see what I did there?).
