Eat local: The hipster mentality has gone mainstream. In an age when cows are pumped full of hormones and there’s a list of “ingredients” on a packet of chicken, it’s nice to be in control of one thing that goes into my body. Familiarity with a local source is one way to achieve this. Lessening our environmental impact is another rationale for finding a local supply. It’s aided by the guilt of a coal-dependent conscience. Or, in my case, the sunburns attributed to a thinning of the ozone. They aren’t doing a thing for my youthful complexion.
