Enter, Food Inc.
If you haven't seen the documentary Food Inc, you need to. Here is a trailer for the documentary. ( You can view the documentary in it's entirety via Netflix. )
I don't mean to step on any toes--but if you are feeding your children pop-tarts and McDonalds, then you need to watch this documentary.
I love Oregon. I love my New Seasons market. I love buying grass fed beef from our local farms. I love buying my chicken from the local farms, through New Seasons, knowing that the name Tyson is not anywhere near it! ( You'll understand that statement more after watching the documentary. )
Be prepared to shed tears, as a mother shares her story of losing her baby to E.coli. Be prepared to get outraged at the "big" chicken and beef companies, their hiring practices, their lack of ethics, and their gross quest for money over people's health.
Be prepared to want to march straight to the farmer's market and buy boatloads of organic foods.
And, be prepared to tell everyone you know, that doesn't eat organic, grass fed, open cage, etc....., that they're eating beef that came from cows standing in their own poop, chickens that could only walk a few steps without collapsing from illness, and beef that was raised on corn. ( wink wink! )
Oh, let me tell you, you will want to shout some things from the roof tops!
But sit back.
Soak it all in.
