One way to change the way you eat is to be informed.

While you’re at it … make sure you go off and watch Food, Inc.

I forgot how well compiled and powerful the message in this feature was put together.I think it should be required viewing for everyone.

But don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s a pro-vegan campaign – It’s not about scaremongering. It really is about understanding what is happening to the food and why. It’s understanding that you as a consumer must demand certain things – demand fresh food, demand gmo free food, demand that the provider of your food tells you what they are serving you.Oh, and you can do all of this at the arches or the southern gent’s or even at the hut. Demand it of ALL of your food providers, and they will change.

Finally, You should check out Pollan’s food books, In Defense of Food and The Omnivore’s Dilemma. where he seeks to explain why we eat the way we do, why the industrialized Western food system is the way it is and why that’s not necessarily the best thing for our health.
