We are What We Eat

And unfortunately, it's not a pretty picture.

The Mister and I watched Food, Inc. last night. It is an absolutely fabulous, mind-blowing movie that everyone must see. Must. See.

Find the movie info here.

Watch it. Watch it. Watch it. It's time for us to end our ignorance, if not for our own health, for the health of our children.

Everyone should watch this movie. Even if you don't agree with everything in it, you'll come away better educated about the food industry.

The authors of the Omnivore's Dilemma and Fast Food Nation are in the movie extensively, as is much of the material covered in those books. It is sobering what the cost of large scale efficiency truly is, which I think is logically laid out.

Piece of advice- don't watch this while eating Mickey D's. It will likely make you feel....funny.

Still loving my meat, just willing to pay more now to get it locally!

I watched this movie a few months ago with a friend. It is a real eye opener!

We've read Omnivore's dilemma, so I'm sure we would whole heartdly agree with the movie. We have bought only local and almost all organic for sometime now. It was a BIG bite into the food budget but at least we can sleep at night w/o worrying that we are "killing" our kids! We have a Haitian child coming that won't know what McDonald's is for as long as we can help it anyway!

I am still on the darn wait list at the library!

So I am finally caught up on your blog, back to the place where I left off. Sarah, I think you are an incredible Mother, I think you and you Mister make a wonderful home for your children. Thanks too for sharing your passion in food activism.

I am so glad to see your boys home,
