- Frederica Huxley As most supermarket chains arbitrarily choose their ‘best by’ dates, this will only lead to more food being chucked, without reference to the state of the food itself. I am sick of seeing people go through their fridges, throwing out all foods that have passed the best by dates! I recall reading about a supplier of cottage cheese who was filling tubs for 3 different chains from the same vat – the dates differed by 5 days. [Will They Really Reduce Food Waste?

- Eppelation There is a really big movement towards sustainability in winery practices, both in terms of managing the vineyards and the production of the wine. Sonoma is doing a great job, but many people might not realize that Napa Valley wineries are also leading the charge on the sustainable front. The Napa Green program has a list of wineries participating in its program – check it out! [The Sustainable Winery: 7 U.S. Wines You Can Feel Good About Drinking http://bit.ly/M0Mx7J ]

- Beth Schlabach Riehm MS is an autoimmune disorder greatly caused by inflammation. If those with MS do the research on foods that cause inflammation and completely stay away from foods that bring on inflammation you’d be surprised at how much better you’d feel.
