A must see film, a new undertaking

http://screencrave.com/2009-06-11/movie-review-food-inc/

Here’s a movie review on the film Yancy and I watched tonight. “Food Inc” has been on our list for a long time and we finally got around to it. Wish we hadn’t waited so long! It’s a real eye opener and has me thinking of things we could do in our own kitchen, shopping routine, and community to support healthier foods, healthier us, and a healthier planet. It’s a big battle, but it needs to be done! We’ve been thinking about going “organic” for some time and have already cut most high fructose corn syrup out of our diet. I may also consider boycotting soy.

I have already been taking small steps, but I’m ready to be more proactive in making sure that my home is more healthy and responsible. We need to eat out less and take more control over what we put on our plates. There’s so much motivation, but there’s also opposition. Society has made it so much easier to consume “bad” foods. When we work 40 hours a week and have such busy social schedules, it’s really hard to make time for preparing fresh and healthy meals. Plus it really is more expensive to eat healthy than it is to buy junk food! Seriously! But it’s not impossible and I’m going to try. As I’ve said before, I am able to achieve anything I put my mind to!
