FOOD, INC <--Click here for their site If you have not yet seen this documentary titled Food, Inc, I 100-thousand percent recommend it to you. Everybody knows that I absolutely love chocolate, grocery shopping, eating, but that I also have a desire to be a better, well-rounded eater. This just heavily motivated me to get on the ball and be a wiser consumer. Our family has done really well on the produce front this week. I've gotten my full serving of fruits each day, and am getting there on the vegetables. Michael wants at least 2 oranges a day. So, I'm feeling pretty happy there.
1. Buy more organic & local food.
2. Pass up the fruit snacks, or the like--even if it's a really good deal with a coupon.
3. Feed Michael how he deserves to be fed by his mother; a wide variety of colors and produce.
I am also half way through this book which touches pretty much on the same topics.
From Pollan's website,"He basically encourages us to "eat food that rots" = more produce!
Now, if only I can get Richard to jump on this bandwagon! Ironically, he just walked in the door with a grocery bag of Tostitos, Oreos, Reeses Pieces, and Granola Cereal. And, I'll bet he didn't even use coupons. I just love my Richard.
