A friend invited me to lunch today, and I happily accepted. I did feel a little guilt at my potential food choices, so I decided to do a bit of research ahead of time. I found a place that seemed pretty interested in fresh, local foods, and I suggested that restaurant to my friend, Brittany, and we traveled there for a light lunch. Once there, we both tried to choose things that seemed climate-friendly (or just “climate,” as I like to call it). She chose a salad made with local lettuce and housemade dressing. I chose a sandwich with Virginia ham and Brie. Ok, the Brie was not all local, obviously, but I realize that it’s the little steps we take that can add up to a big impact.
