Obama Pins Food Porn and Family Recipes

The newest member of the Pinterest family is… President Obama! Have you checked out the page yet? The campaign headquarters started pinning last Wednesday, introducing a bunch of different boards ranging from Pet Lovers for Obama to Obama-Inspired Recipes. We love love love that they included the Obama Family Chili Recipe. You miiiight remember it from the 2008 campaign and also a fundraiser this year during the Super Bowl. Most of the pinning on the recipe board are baked goods and other food nerd creations that are decorated Obama logo + all, but their following is growing enormously already. Super stoked for any other family recipes they pin. Hmmm, hottie Obama Chef Sam Kass, what are you gonna share next?  Have you tried this Obama chili recipe? Did you love? Tell us! In the meantime, check out the Obama Pinterest page. While you’re at it check out and follow us too! [Obama Foodoarama and Eater. Photo via Obama Pin] .

No More Red-Ratings: Whole Food Introduces Sustainable Seafood

Sustainability! Beginning this Earth Day (all you green lovers know that = April 22) Whole Foods Market will FINALLY stop carrying red-rated wild-caught fish in their seafood departments. Whole Foods is the first national grocer to eliminate these red-rated items, meeting their goal of moving towards sustainability a whole year early (they planned on going sustainable on Earth Day of 2013). Progress. So what’s the deal on the red-rated fish? You might have seen this at your local Whole Foods as a red “Avoid” tag on the items; this means that these species are suffering from over-fishing or even that the current fishing methods may harm other life or habitats. The red-rating is determined by Blue Ocean Institute and Monterey Bay Aquarium, two non-profit research orgs. We love that Whole Foods has taken this positive step and hope others learn and assimilate these moves into their stores. As of April 22, here are some of the items that will no longer be available: Atlantic halibut, grey sole, skate, orange roughy, and bluefin tuna. You’ll still be able to get (certified) faves like Alaska salmon, Pacific halibut, Nova Scotia harpoon-caught swordfish, and Pacific cod. Keep an eye out for the green and yellow ratings at Whole Foods for amazing seafood picks! Get all the seafood scoop on Whole Foods at the fish section of their website.
