The Green Life

Parsley sprig in glass bottle.

In the middle of one of my treks around the River Arts District and vicinity, I stopped at a juice bar and had a drink composed mostly of green leafy items. It was delicious and refreshing, and reminded me how much I enjoy using my own juicer—when I can actually be bothered to acquire the vast amount of fresh produce needed to fuel the beast.

Asheville markets and restaurants loudly tout the localness (locality? localiciousness?) of their offerings. While it may sometimes become excessively crunchy-granola-more-environmentally-sound-than-thou, I will say I’d rather live somewhere that’s paying attention to where its resources are coming from and where they’re going… than not.

Happy Earth Day!
