just a quickie link: tofu’s footprint

I’ve got the kugel in the fridge and I have yet to try it, but I’m having a crazy weekend…promise to give it a try tonight and I’ll let y’all know how it turned out. But for now, here’s a look at the environmental impact of tofu, from Slate. No consideration of animal rights here; it’s just about the greenhouse gases.

If I were an omni reading this post, it would be really easy to dismiss the effect, like it’s not that big a deal if you aren’t normally a big beef eater (yet some pat themselves on the back for buying a hybrid SUV they have no use for). Why not encourage people to eat as much organic, unprocessed, plant-based, not-shipped-in-from-the-other-side-of-the-planet food as possible?
