Humboldt’s greens lovers have spoken! 

Congratulations go to this week’s Humboldt Approved winners: Wildflower Cafe in Arcata (metro region) and Humboldt Healthy Foods in Fortuna (rural region). According to LoCO clickers, they don’t do meat better than the rest.

To celebrate their victory, let’s all sing a round of “Why Must We Eat the Animals (Oh Why Oh Why?).” Everybody now …

PREVIOUSLY: All Past Humboldt Approved Winners

Original Post: According to some numbers LoCO googled, 5% of Americans identify as vegetarians and 2% would call themselves vegan, which feels like more proof that Humboldt is barely America. The Humboldt veggie army has to be more significant than that, yeah? 

Maybe we’ll be able to judge a bit better based on the popularity of this week’s Humboldt Approved. This time out we’re asking, of the the stars in Humboldt’s restaurant-y sky, which shines brightest to local vegetarians? Assuming you swing that way — it’s cool if you only dabble — which establishment’s green cuisine makes your little rabbit nose twitch with anticipation? 

We’re looking for two winners this week. Below is your reminder of how to make your vote matter:

To vote, look through the comments of this Humboldt Approved poll. If someone has already nominated the answer you would give for that week’s category, click the upvote arrow. If you don’t see your desired Humboldt Approved answer nominate it in a comment for others to upvote. (Please be careful to not duplicate answers; redundant answers will be deleted and potential associated upvotes will be lost.) Feel free to make your case by replying to/cheering on the answer you love most, but again the number by the arrows is what counts.

Of course, you can vote for as many nominees as you deem worthy, but of course the more you do that the more watered down your initial vote becomes. That’s math.

We reserve the right to delete superfluous comments that make the voting/comment section hard to sift through. Please try not to get offended when your comment battle reply is deleted. We’re trying to do something here.

We are looking for two winners — one winner from the metropolises of Eureka and Arcata, and one from Humboldt’s smaller communities. Voting closes next Friday at noon and soon after a winner will be declared. (Tip: Sort comments by “BEST” to get a better grasp of how voting is trending.)

Eat your veggies, HumCo. Then nominate away.
