Noteworthy Green: Not In Season, Green Halloween, Coal River Mountain, and More...

>> Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Check out my latest post at The Green Phone Booth: In Season? Not so much...

My last post here at the Booth was my tribute to seasonal eating. "Jackie" commented on that post:
I'm having such a hard time with this right now. The eco-geek in me REALLLLLY wants to eat as locally and seasonally as possible, but truth be told, I don't like winter veggies very much here in Chicago. I'm not quite sure how to get around that one small fact, other than canning or freezing, which I am too late to do. Your comment about feeling deprived rings true and hard for me. Any suggestions??
I thought this was a great question, so I wanted to open it up to all of you and get your insights.

And elsewhere on the Internet:

:: Green Halloween has the best list of alternate "treats" I've ever seen. I'm wishing now that I didn't already buy those organic lollipops.

:: Whip Up has another refashion round up. Love these!

:: Courtney at The Greenists says, "I'd like to buy the world a non-carcinogenic, responsibly packaged, healthier alternative to Coke." I just really, really like that title.

:: Fake Plastic Fish ran into Jackson Browne and got him to rant about bottled water. So cool!

:: Grist describes a very interesting study that indicates that junk food is as addictive as heroin.

:: Smart Family Tips has a yummy looking soup mix recipe for those of you that are under the weather.

I'm now using Twitter to keep track of my noteworthy green reads. If you'd like instant knowledge of what I find interesting, you can find me on Twitter as consciousshoppr.
