Is it possible to be a sustainable foodie?

My boyfriend and I have been trying very hard to live a more sustainable life. We have our own garden, we try to buy local produce and we support local farms. However, when I came home after visiting my favorite cheese shop with Buffalo Mozzarella di Campania and French goat cheese in hand, my boyfriend was less than happy. I realized that I have a serious conflict of interest. How can I pretend to live a sustainable life while still enjoying my favorite foodie indulgences? Do I have to give up my fresh salmon from Alaska, my avocados from California and worst of all, my cheese from Italy and France to live a sustainable life?? How can I reconcile this problem?
