Distavores

Thanks to Cincinnati Locavore for this Time article about a "distavore" meal. It was, the author says, Chris Dodd's references to the 100-mile diet as a new American dream that was his tipping point. All foods were from at least 3,000 miles away and purchased from Whole Foods.
I've been reading Marion Nestle's "What to Eat," and she very simply breaks down local vs. organic vs. conventional. If you worry about consuming pesticides, antibiotics and hormones entering your body, eat organic. If you worry about the carbon footprint of your dinner, eat local. Sure, you can eat both local and organic, but could one infer that eating organic is selfish while eating local is altruistic and better for society as a whole? Sigh. Let's just Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.

Thanks, Valereee for this great point about country of origin labeling:*

Not long ago, he would have had a hard time even knowing where most of his
produce came from. Now when he wants to eat Peruvian asparagus, at least he can.
Thank a locavore, Joel.

*Not that all foods are labeled, as we well know.
