Link: Jacqueline Church on Sensible Sustainability

I cannot for the life of me remember from which site I was linked to this article, because it took me a day or two to get around to reading it.

Jacqueline Church presents a reasoned and, well, sensible look at the difficulty of choosing which foods are "best", and does it a million times better than I could.

One of her main points is that we should embrace incompetence. In realizing that the qualities of "good" food: local, organic, sustainable, (healthy, reasonably priced, ...) can often be in conflict with each other, and we shouldn't be looking for easy answers or a quick fix.

There's no point in me reiterating the whole article though, when you could be reading it right now. So go. Yes you. Git!
