Food Inc.

 

So at Heidi's recommendation, Lisa and I watched Food Inc. a little over a week ago. I don't claim to know the accuracy of all the statements made but it showed how factory animals are treated. It was so hard for me to watch that I have been unable to eat meat since. It's been an interesting experience. In that time, I have noticed a few things. First of all, meat is EVERYWHERE! It's hard to find vegetarian options in the world of fast food and restaurants. Cafe Elite was great because I could order anything on the menu. Secondly, my body without meat has more energy and my stomach is a little flatter. :) Nice side benefits but not the reason for not eating meat. Anyway, I am not sure how long this will continue. Heidi and Lisa have made a concerted effort to have organic, grass-fed meats. Whenever I start to eat meat again, I'm sure I'll go that direction.
