While we normally leave food matters to our sister site, The Kitchn, food inevitably creeps into our posts every once and awhile because it's so closely tied to many of the issues we care about. Whether it's pesticides on produce, eating local and supporting CSAs, vegetarianism vs. ominvorism, hormones in food, growing your own food, radical homemaking, food packaging and buying in bulk, the choices we make at the table have a profound effect on our health and the health of the planet. Now TreeHugger has provided their latest must-read recommendations on sustainable eating:
