I have been reading the book Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser. After watching Food, Inc a few times and reading this book I’m to the point of wondering what, if anything, we should be purchasing to eat from large commercial sources. I love what Annette at Sustainable Eats has done. She vowed to re-channel her grocery money away from mono-crop farmers, processed food companies and animal feed lots. She started her process January of 2009 and has done a wonderful job of finding local sources for the food for her family. Some of it she even produces herself. What she is doing is what I would like to do also. But I’m not quite ready to completely give up the grocery store. Maybe I’ll feel more inclined when something starts growing in my garden or the farmers market opens at the end of July. In the mean time, I’ll keep stalking Annette’s blog to see all the neat stuff she does and continue to look for alternative sources for things.
