This scares the jeepers out of me, and is yet another reason why I feel secure in my decision to go back to a vegetarian diet. The only meat I now buy for my family comes from places like this one, here, and if the week's grocery budget doesn't allow it, then we do without.
Even better is a diet in which you can point to the exact spots where the majority of your food comes from, like your backyard or the organic farm down the road or the farmer's market up the block. Way easier on the wallet than the produce sold at your local grocers, not to mention an easier impact on the environment. Granted, it's not 'easier' than throwing a prepackaged, frozen just-heat-and-serve-and-try-to-ignore-the-mystery-meat meal on the table (I've been guilty of that more than once!), but I find a little pre-planning in the meal department goes a long way. It's just a matter of getting my game on enough to get it all done. Yet reading articles like the one above re-ignites my focus on healthy eating and suddenly the menu preparing moves up on my priority list.
Okay, I need to stop surfing the net now and go to bed. Hopefully I won't have nightmares of salmon/mouse hybrids chasing after me down the aisles in a meat packing plant. Ewwwww.
