After watching these two shows I have made a resolution to change my family's eating habits. Cage free, organics for us and no more processed junk! It is going to be more expensive, but we will just have to sacrifice elsewhere so that we can do it.
It is so important to remember that we vote each time we go grocery shopping. We vote not only about how animals are treated, but about how long we are going to live due to the foods we eat. It's time to make these ginormous food companies have integrity and accountability.
As the movie says, we are going to "buy from companies who treat their workers, animals and the environment with respect." Wish us luck, and please consider to joining us.
p.s. If you haven't seen either of these shows, watch them. You can find Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution here and Food, Inc. is here if you are a Netflix member. They really will change your eating habits (and your life).
p.s.s. Be forewarned. I wasn't able to finish Food, Inc. due to it being far too disturbing for me. I just finished watching it, feeling the need to if I was going to be posting about it on my blog. Be prepared to shed a few tears and to be empowered to make a change.
Have you seen either of these already? What were your thoughts?
