New Resources for you...

I watched a disturbing film last night which solidifies my growing fear of the food industry: Food, Inc.  Have you watched it?  What really scared me is that even by switching to a vegan diet, there are still so many issues with the food that we eat.  Take the soybean, I am not sure I can relay the issue with the soybean the way the documentary said it...but trust me there are problems.  I am also reading the book The China Study, I just started it, but already it is full of information that everyone should look into! Rather than give you a full synopsis which would not do either justice, I urge you to watch Food, Inc. and read The China Study.  Our country has a very interesting way of producing food that makes it seem as though it really isn't even food anymore! So I am trying out a CSA this summer to do my part to combat our food industry.  Check out localharvest.org. The CSA I have chosen is in Huntersville, NC, Patriot's Rest Farm.  I did already go to the grocery store this month...so this will definitely not be my challenge month, I am thinking in May once the Farmer's markets are in full swing.  I just really wish we had a larger market here in Mooresville.  Maybe if we all start visiting the farmer's markets instead of our grocery stores and eating less processed foods, our demand will result in a large farmer's markets with lots of variety.  Someday...
