6 Tips for Greener Grilling

6 Tips for Greener Grilling

Before firing up your grill for a cookout, check out these simple—and surprising!—ways to lessen your eco-impact and barbecue healthier. Did you know gas beats charcoal every time? Or that besides making meat delicious, marinades can be good for you, too? With a little planning, you can grill safer, healthier, and greener. 1. Go gas, chuck charcoal. Research shows that a charcoal grill’s carbon footprint is three times greater than a gas grill’s. Fat dripping onto coals creates that smoky aroma you might savor—but it also emits cancer-causing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Plus, charcoal-churned soot irritates lungs, and lighter fluid squirted onto hot briquettes wafts up and soaks into your food. Eww. 2. Marinate meat. Cooking beef, chicken, pork, fish, and […]

Food Fight! Wild vs. Farmed Salmon [Infographic]

Salmon Infographic

Salmon is straight-up one of the healthiest fish you’ll find. It’s very low in mercury, high in protein, and extremely high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are stellar for your heart, memory, and mood. But it’s important to know your salmon source. Most of the salmon Americans eat come from foreign fish farms, which are cleaner and less crowded than they used to be, but not top-notch. When you choose wild salmon, you can be sure it was caught in its native habitat, like the Sockeye and Coho we offer that swim freely in cold, pristine Alaskan waters. When you order salmon at restaurants, most likely the fish was farmed if it doesn’t say wild. But how can you tell […]

Go Natural When Dyeing Easter Eggs

eco-egg-dyeing-meme

  When I was a kid, every Easter I dunked eggs in mugs filled with those fizzing tablets that instantly produced vibrant colors. It was the ’70s, or the better-living-through-chemistry decade, when no one questioned how chemicals affected our health. Today, even though the kits sold in stores proclaim to be nontoxic, many still contain synthetic food dyes that studies have linked to allergies and behavioral problems like ADHD in children. Why not skip the kits with neon colors and glitter pens (they contain polyurethane) and go au naturel this spring? Using veggies, fruits, spices, tea, and coffee will produce a vivid array of hues from soft pastels to deep, earthy tones. Of course, creating dyes with organic produce will help […]
