Until just recently I didn't put much thought into what I ate, or where my food came from. After watching the documentary Food Inc. I gotta say I am a changed person. I decided to be a flexitarian, yes I know...lol, I can't give up meat entirely b/c I am a farm girl, and was raised on all the good stuff that is provided by the animals. But I am now making a conscious decision not to buy meat, only from farmers markets or from what is provided on my grampa's farm, or surrounding locals. Now let me say, the first week that I gave up all the "bad stuff" I had a craving for KFC like a hot damn! but I persevered! Now that I make a conscious effort to know what I am eating, it has definitely made me think! I know, I sound like such a food thumper? lol, but really, the horrible living conditions that the animals have to experience is SO NOT my cup of tea. Would you want to live cramped in a dark building, waiting to die? I think they make horror movies like that!
Ok Ok enough of my rant, I just felt I needed to put that down since its such a part of me now...watch Food Inc!!!
