To tie up the long weekend Ken and I watched the movie Food, Inc. If you get the chance to watch it, please do. We've read several of the books written by the people interviewed in the movie, and although the movie did not go into as much detail as the books do, it is an eye-opening film. I could go on and on about it, but all I will say is that I hope more and more people start to become more aware and more involved in bringing about a food revolution. I always feel a bit overwhelmed after watching or reading stuff like that. I sort of feel like change is impossible, but it is not. One by one we can make a difference.
On that note, if you aren't able to shop for your food at the local market, you can also sign up to have a veggie box delivered to your door (in the HRM) by Home Grown Organics Foods. They also give you the option of customizing your box, by adding meat, yogurt, baking goods and a whole bunch of other stuff. Of course, if you have the time and energy to go to the market it's always a great experience! The point is that you should get to know your food, after all it it is one of the most intimate relationships you have!
