Thanks, Food Inc.

Last night Doc H watched the documentary "Food Inc" while I was sleeping. Because of this, he has shared his desire to consume only farm raised meat.

I'll admit, it's not going to be that much of a stretch for us. We already have fairly healthy eating habits. I don't purchase anything from the freezer section unless it's veggies or all-natural ice cream, and even the veggies are for emergency situations only.

I switched from ground beef to ground bison years ago. By the time the kids realized it, I had already been serving it up to them for over a year and a half.

So, yesterday we were ordering at a fast food drive thru and today we're here:

Should you need me, try looking for me at our local ranches and farms (I'm sure I'll be able to find some within a 200 mile radius from home) where I'll be throwing a half a cow, 4 pigs, and 24 chickens in the trunk of my car.

The things we do for love.


  1. Looks like a good movie. Have you read any of Michael Pollan's books? You would probably like his book,"In Defense Of Food."

    1. No. I don't know if I could stomach any books...

  2. I made the mistake (or was blessed enough) to watch it too. And then I read the books The Botany of Desire and Omnivores, it was hard to find anything I should eat after that. For a while everything I put in my mouth I actually thought about. Not a bad thing. And a great way to start eating less:-) Have you seen Forks Over Knives? Netflix has it:-)

  3. I am too chicken to watch this...but love the idea of you throwing a cow in your trunk--supposed to be a really great thing to do!

    1. I think we may slowly working towards half a cow... Gotta start somewhere.

  4. looks like a movie that needs to be watched by everyone! i will be watching it tonight. thanks!

  5. I watched this in a class I took about a year ago and it still haunts me. The politics of it all just disgust me.

    I found the craziest part to be the veggie libel laws making it illegal to speak out against food companies, manufacturers, and restaurants in certain states. Scary stuff if you ask me...

    Anyway on a much more positive note.. I'm your newest follower from the Fun Friday Blog Hop. I'm loving your blog and I can't wait for more updates :)

    Have a great weekend!
