It is undoubtedly expensive to buy organic meat for a big family, especially on our island. As much as I want to eat a good burger now and then, it is cheaper to be vegetarian. But, I still crave protein and I get sick of beans.. or at least the beans make us sick of each other.
The only inexpensive solution to this is seafood, but not all fish is equal. I used to always get salmon because it supports the B.C. economy, but the sockeye salmon run was terrible this year, the worst it has been in 50 years. Then I get paranoid about what to get because you don't know if it is farmed or full of toxins like tuna is. That's when you need a sustainable seafood guide.
The following is a list of safe, sustainable, organic, free-range food:
I've only had oysters, squid, and trout. Pretty much all other seafood is suspect, which is such a shame. So yesterday I got myself some sardines, which are supposed to be very healthy for you. I haven't quite figured out what I will do with them, but I'm sure they will be tasty.
This week my posting may be a bit sparse as we are in the middle of moving, but videos will soon follow. Stay tuned!
