Kate Krader (@kkrader on Twitter) is Food & Wine's restaurant editor. When she tells us where to find our culinary heart's desire, we listen up.

Like every other holiday I can think of, Earth Day comes but once a year. I’m planning to celebrate it more often, namely by going out to eat at the best environmentally friendly places I can find - like the ones below. Please join me.

Cindy’s Waterfront, Monterey Bay Aquarium - Monterey, California
I wish I had a handy joke about eating fish at an aquarium: I don’t. (If you do, please forward!) Surprise or not, the Monterey Bay Aquarium has always served very good sustainable seafood. And it’s about to get even better.

MBA’s revamped restaurant Cindy’s Waterfront debuts on April 27; chef Cindy Pawlcyn will feature wild-caught and sustainably farmed fish that meet the standards of the aquarium’s Seafood Watch program. Pawlcyn’s menu includes dishes like true cod soft tacos with lime-cumin vinaigrette; Monterey Bay calamari with Cindy’s curry vinaigrette; and for the non-fish group, Hunan grilled chicken salad with sesame noodles and peanut sauce.

When you dine at restaurants — which some of us do on a daily basis — it may seem hard to eat healthfully, let alone sustainably, but this isn't necessarily true.

Clean Plates founder and nutritionist Jared Koch has some suggestions to put sustainable dining within your reach.

Sustainably delicious – clean, green eats for Earth Day

April 22 is Earth Day, and there's no better way to start celebrating and protecting the planet than by taking a closer look at what's on your plate.

We're challenging everyone we know to grow one thing - just one thing - that they can eat, and of course, we're putting our money where our mouth is and planting a garden, ourselves.

You could also consider joining a CSA (that's community supported agriculture), buying direct at a farmers market, staying as local as possible, keeping a close eye on the origins of your seafood or supporting chefs who are doing the right things for the environment.

Chew on that while you explore our simple and endlessly delicious tips for eating eco-friendly.
