is changing my life.
I am not new to these ideas, in fact I have known a great deal about the nastiness of the food industry for a while, just seeing this movie is reminding me that my body is a temple that needs constant care. I checked the movie out from the library, twice. I made my husband watch it. I read the book too and read parts of it out loud to him as I was reading.
If you haven't seen the movie the book is just as good (the info is different in both- they are companion pieces). I think we all should watch this with our families and start a food revolution, a la Jaime Oliver (love what he did in Huntington, just sayin').
things we are doing since watching this movie/reading the book that I didn't do before:
reading all food labels
avoiding fast food if at all possible
making my own bread (periodically)
buying locally if possible (shopping at Whole Foods makes this most possible)
eating organic dairy and meat
eating organic produce if it is available
eating more organic foods (such as pasta, cereal, etc.)
explaining where food comes from to my kids (we watched Jaime Oliver show how chicken nuggets were made, we might never eat these again)
making more homemade stuff in general (salad dressing, cookies, etc.)
preaching to all who will listen about the evils of bad food (just kidding)
I truly believe these changes will benefit my family. I don't anticipate we'll change overnight but slow and steady will definitely win this race for us at least. I sincerely hope others are affected by these pieces as much as I have been, they are truly shocking and groundbreaking.
