local Los Angeles community news and events. They support everything from food swaps to beer bike rides, and you can't argue with doing good. The magazine/integrated media platform emailed me to ask if I'd like to post about their June challenge, which is to go meat-free for 30 days to help save the planet. I'd love to support Good and all they do, but that's just too long for a foodblogger to go without carnitas, sushi and shortribs. Actually I don't eat much meat at all, but I feel better if I keep up a fairly steady supply of fish, poultry and the occasional pork belly-scallop skewer like last night at Moko. But I'll try to be mindful of choosing more sustainable poultry and meat this month, and maybe get a bit more ambitious with some vegetarian main dishes, just to be a good sport. Which is probably more than most foodbloggers would do, since they tend to skew thoroughly meatarian like this Ruth Bourdain graphic mocking the new government food recommendations.
What do you think? Would you go meat-free for a month? Do you think it would make a significant environmental difference?
