It is always encouraging to hear from others - I would like to eat more seasonally and I think I am slowly learning and changing but I find it harder to find information on blogs and in cookbooks about our seasons in Melbourne (even the south of Australia is different to the north) - but it makes me think I need to get out to farmers markets more and I will be checking out these blogs - thanks

[...] ~ The Leftover Queen (a.k.a., Jenn), who manages the ever-popular Foodie Blogroll, dubbed SFTF as one of her Top 5 Green or Sustainable Eating Blogs, noting, “ is all about living in an urban area, but still committing to eating locally…it is a wonderful project and so inspiring!” http://www.leftoverqueen.com/2008/03/14/finest-foodies-friday-top-5-green-or-sustainable-eating-blog...  [...]

I am thrilled that you all are still enjoying FFF. I enjoy it too - it gets me re-acquainted with all the great blogs we have for reference in The Foodie Blogroll and reminds me how diverse the food blogging community is! It also gives me an oppurtunity to talk about things I am passionate about! So thanks for all your feedback! Valli! I know, Judy's blog is great! I am sure you will enjoy the others as well! That is a great idea Peter! I think we should take action when we feel it is right! Thank you Judy for all that you do! That was my goal with this post! Thanks Jennie for all that you do as well! We are all one big team! Hey I love the pork too, Heather, don't get me wrong - there is a place for all of this on the planet - but you are starting a garden and going to your market - so you are doing stuff too! :) Thanks Ley! I love that quote! :) Yes, Brittany! You will love them too! Thanks Emiline! I appreciate your comment! I am sure when you get out on your own, it will be easier to be greener. Thanks Courtney! That is great! :) I am so glad that you are enjoying FFF. Thanks Gil! I appreciate it! Thanks Ivy! I am glad to hear about what you are doing to go green! Hey Helen! Make Tabbouleh! I think that is the best use of parsley ever! You can also try parsley pesto...some people swear by it! Not me, because I don't really like parsley...thanks for commenting! Thanks Astra! I really appreciate it! Thanks Sophie! Keep up the good work on your blog! :) Deb, I bring my own bags to the store as well! It is an easy way to do your part...I did not know this about Publix though with the wine...I will have to look into that! ;)Thanks for the tip! Hey Sally! No problem! Keep up the good work! Isn't it amazing how food can be so inspirational!? This is true Katie! It is harder to be green when you have so much choice and so much of it is based on convenience which translates to CRAP. Hey, I also bring my own bags to the grocery! :) I hear you We Are Never Full! One day I hope to have my own land too where I can be more sustainable, not just green. Glad to hear you are having a good weekend! ;) You'll get there Marie! It does take a while to start a new habit - I think I have finally gotten to the point where I remember to bring my own bags into the store! :) Thanks so much Laurie! I really appreciate it and I am glad you are enjoying FFF. EXACTLY, Nuria! Just like Ley's quote - it is all about the next 7 generations...a Native point of view that everything you do affects the next 7 generations, so you need to be thougtful about every action you take. Thanks Alexx! I know you will enjoy them! That is great to hear Cris! We need to do this more in schools in the US. it is amazing to me when I hear how many people still don't recycle! Thanks Cris! :)

Schools have a great share on helping our kids to save the planet... at least here, my kids go to schools that promote a lot of recycling. Jenn, I love the FFF, it's when you get to talk more about yourself too and share some more great ideas.

A very thought-provoking and well-written post, Jenn. I share your sentiments entirely. I'm really enjoying your Friday posts highlighting great blogs, already I've found some new favorites! I also wanted to mention how terrific your Yogi Times article was - congratulations!

Whole foods and Trader Joes, are going to stop carrying plasic and paper bags by Earth Day, here in Chicagoland. I now carry my own bags into the store with me, they're reusable. I have to admit, I often forget them in the trunk of my car, and have to run back out to get them. Creature of habit I guess. Hopefully this new way will become a habit to me soon. Nice post Jenn!

This is such a wonderful post. We do try to be as 'green' as we can, but I know it's not good enough. Just switching lightbulbs, turning off lights, not using plastic bags at stores and recycling isn't enough. And I know I need to do more!! Reading this post made me think (which after 2 drinks and an empty stomach is not easy) and I thank you for that! I often think about trying to make food from local ingredients b/c, even though I live in Brooklyn, NY, there are plenty of resources. Unfortunately they really are so much more expensive (which I know isn't really a good excuse). One day when we live on land and we are able to grow our own food we'll be practicing what we preach! Anyways, the booze is talking now so I'll go. Good job, Jenn! I'm going to go start a compost pile now! Wait, I live in Brooklyn... amy @ http://www.weareneverfull.com

Oh yeah, I brought one of my grocery bags (we have to supply our own) with me to shop in the US - so now I can embarrass my family and friends by bringing my own bag to the supermarket ;-))

I think if you live in the US, where so much is available all of the time, you have to work a bit harder to live 'green'. I know I eat seasonally because that's all that is available (for the most part). I don't eat 'packaged' food because there really isn't any. I didn't realize it when it happened (and I bitched a lot 11 years ago when we moved) but it's just the way we live now.
