I said I'd not come back, but I'm coming back

I'll be blunt. The documentary, Food, Inc, will change your life. Probably for the better. Documentarian Robert Kenner did a phenomenal job of reinforcing what many people already knew: We are an obese nation with a food industry that is the root of the cause.

The great thing about the film is that Kenner doesn't simply make you angry at a very political and very messed up industry, but he offers insight and understanding for how we can all be a part of the solution. He is very adamant about the fact that we do, in fact, have the power to change these things. Check out his interview with Jon Stewart here.

For me and my wife, we've already reduced the places we eat down to the ones that serve mostly local and completely all natural items. And we've had an awesome time visiting the Nashville Farmer's Market (something we did previously, but only occasionally) many times in the past weeks.

Also, check out the books, Fast Food Nation and The Omnivore's Dilemma. They greatly expose the messed up system in which our food is created.

Please watch this film. It's in limited cities, but it will be on DVD shortly. And if you don't have a clue where to start supporting the right things and buying the right foods, find a local market near you - Local Harvest

I'd love to have a conversation with anyone interested. Let's chat.
