DailyDirt: Sustainable Eating -- Yummy Or Gross?

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Plenty of people like a big, rare steak every once in a while. It's probably not the healthiest meal, but everything in moderation, right? How about insect protein for "meatless Mondays" or seaweed salads before dinner? Everything in moderation, right? Here are just a few interesting ways to expand your palate and maybe eat in a more sustainable fashion -- if you can stomach it. After you've finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    yeahhhhh, no...

    most any time i try some offbeat stuff like seaweed crackers or whatever, it is like: ohhhhh-kay, not totally awful, but still not 'good'; i can rarely choke down enough to be a serving...
    after a few bites of whatever 'super-food', it REALLY makes me thankful for the next plate of ribs i have...
    thanks for being, piggies, you are tasty critters ! ! !

    we simply need to get away from the factory farming model, and go back to the distributed, homestead based-agricultural practices and local animal husbandry...
    zillion gallon poo lagoons for factory-raised chickens, pigs, etc, is UNNATURAL as hell, and causes a whole raft of attendant issues...
    but a dozen chickens on every property or so, a couple pigs every neighborhood, and the poo gets deployed in a helpful manner to benefit the cycle of the farm in keeping the soil replenished with nutrients, etc...
    we have perverted the systems which worked well for thousands of years, and by unnaturally concentrating and raising livestock, we have made an unsustainable, destructive cycle...
    just so a FEW fancy pants can rake in zillions, and we get inferior products and a wasted environment WE pay to clean up, NOT the fancy pants...
