Sustainable living is a modern lifestyle that emphasizes protecting natural resources for future generations. Making sustainable food choices is part of this movement, and involves selecting foods whose production methods do not harm the environment and can help sustain the economic viability of independent farmers.
Although it may sound difficult, hosting a sustainable dinner party can be quite simple and rewarding. If there’s one in your area, consider joining a CSA (community supported agriculture) or shopping at farmers’ markets to support local growers. Select locally grown produce and sustainable seafood, such as Pacific halibut, which are caught or farmed using environmentally friendly methods. Complete your meal with fresh, artisanal bread from a local bakery and white wine from a local vineyard.
