Food, Inc.

I am usually not into political "things". But while eating my Stonyfield Farm organic yogurt today (my yummy addiction), I read an ad for the movie Food, Inc.. This past year I started researching healthier eating for my family. It has become a huge passion of mine. I think that what we put into our bodies is so very important. And I have come to believe that the closer that food, and other things really, are to natural, the better. I struggle with this part of living at camp for five plus months, maybe the most. I have very little control over the foods my family eats while here. And no one else here shares my passion or desire to live and eat naturally. Our camp kitchen is full of foods laden with chemicals, preservatives, dyes, additives, artificial sweeteners, etc. And I am fully aware and understand that some of it is a necessity for camp ministry. We could not possibly budget an entire summers meal plan for hundreds of campers and staffers organically and naturally. *Pooey* So I do what I can while here. Lots of yogurt and lots of grace! {wink} But as the summer is slowly starting to fade, I have an itch to put my familys eating back in my own hands! I still have much to learn, and I am so excited to see this movie! Anyone else with me??

That looks like it will be excellent. Like you, I don't gravitate towards political stands, but I love how in the preview how they were talking about the pursuit of nutritionally dense food being a noble goal. Inspiring :o)

Certainly a passion for me & my husband...although it is extremely difficult & we are lazy but let the grace pour down on our nutritional compromises! Thanks for checking out my blog. Looks like we have a lot in common! I look forward to reading more of your blog.
