Last night we watched Food, Inc. My hubby said he no longer wants to eat anything at all.
With our food controlled by a handful of companies it is easy to freak out and panic about what we are eating, really.
GMO soybeans are in majority of our foods and we don’t even get to know about it?
Cattle, pigs, and chickens are abused physically, frozen in the trucks in our winters, sick and healthy mashed together because of automated Processes. If you truly are what you eat, why are we surprised that there is so much unrest in this world?
Why are we surprised that there are so many angry, mean, hurtful and hurting people in this world?
We create foods that are destroyed and devoid of life before they even hit the store shelves.
Why do we need to buy 1.99 chicken meat?
Why do we need to buy it at all?
When we purchase pop on sale made with high fructose corn syrup, we have already paid for it with joint pain, future diabetes, premature aging of our cells and higher taxes to cover everyone else’s rising health needs.
Last week I attended a container gardening workshop – timely for the season ahead but also for the viewing of that food documentary. I have no fewer than 5 separate pots of seeds sprouting as I type. Sprouting peas, broccoli florets, alfalfa, clover bathed in water twice a day.
