"Can We Afford to Eat Ethically?"

There's a great article* on Salon today by Siobhan Phillips, who conducted a monthlong experiment to see if it's possible to eat organically, locally, ethically, and affordably. She concluded that it is, as long as you also eat frugally and thoughtfully.

Best quote: 
Eating sustainably and frugally forces you to challenge preferences and resist ruts, since you pretty much have to buy any available item that's cheap and well-grown. Thrifty habits thus helped my husband and me to dine more adventurously, and we felt pleasantly surprised more often than deprived.
*If you don't subscribe to Salon, it's worth going through the site's day-pass procedure to read this piece.
