A few weeks ago I watched most of Food Inc. which you can watch on Netflix Instant Watch. I got through about 45 minutes of it, not because I found it boring, but because I couldn't stand watching what the animals had to go through to provide all of us meat. It really makes you think about what your putting in your mouth and where it is coming from. Food Inc. really made me stop and think and still three weeks later I am still thinking about what we can do as a family and our purchasing power in the marketplace. After watching the movie I investigated purchasing meat from organic online meat companies. At this point in our lives we just cannot afford it. I know we need to go to more meatless meals, we are starting the process. But it takes time. Soon I will be purchasing local eggs from a friend with free range chickens. There is a great giveaway over at www.shelookethwell.blogspot.com for a $75.00 gift certificate to Wellness Meats. Alot of the blogs I read are all of the same mindset about this and they help me to forge on in this area of menu planning and health.
