(aka Food Inc changed my life)
Okay, I know Ruth was talking about this before. I hadnt seen the movie at that point. We watched it this week. If you havent seen it, I would recommend it. Its an eye opener for SURE.
We are changing how we eat. One thing at a time, but wondered if anyone else was doing or has done the same? What tips or ideas do you have for me?
First step: We have decided to eat local meat and buy local produce whenever possible. Free range, grass fed. We are super lucky to live in West Michigans "salad bowl" so we have this opportunity. I joined the Co-op (35$/yr) and can order from the many local farmers once monthly. Everything from meat to soap. Not ready to go that deep yet, but starting with the meat, eggs, produce and other food items from this coop. Also, our farmers market starts next week- bi-weekly.
What are you doing to supply clean, healthy food to your family? What advice or tips can you give a processed food junkie?
I never realize just how monopolized and corporate our food supply is. I never understood what a disadvantage the certified organic farmers were at. Its a bit scary and Im ready to change.
