I recently spoke with WTOP radio in Washington, D.C. about a recent report that the recession may be making our diets healthier, and by extension, greener. To save money, Americans are buying less alcohol, sweets and meat - all of which can have a large carbon footprint. We're buying more milk, eggs and veggies (though we're not choosing pricy organic foods).  At the same time, Americans are foregoing sit-down restaurant meals in favor of fast food, which means more trips through the McDonald's drive-through - which is bad for both our waistlines and our planet.
