Have you seen this yet?
I watched it on Netflix Saturday. My husband and I contracted that horrible stomach bug that was going around. Boo-Boo had it Thursday and Sissy threw up in her bed that night. I guess between cleaning up messes and holding sickies, we got it. Anyway, I felt horrible Saturday, barely moving off the couch. Around 6 in the evening I decided to watch something. Nothing on TV. Why is that? So I pulled up Netflix and remembered I had put Food Inc. in our queue.
I was so surprised after watching this documentary. My husband reminded me that this is only one side of the story. There are always two sides. My friend Brandy says there are 3 sides to every story - yours, mine and the truth. So while I'd like to believe everything they said was true, I'm sure there were some things left unsaid.
I'm not going to spoil it for you if you haven't seen it, but I do think it's worth watching. Especially if you have concerns about healthy eating.
After watching it, I've decided to do some research on grass-fed beef and free-range chicken. We have some friends who live in Alabama who raise grass-fed beef. We actually considered purchasing 1/2 a cow last year. Things got busy and I didn't think about it when it was time for them to butcher their cows. I'll be asking them about it again.
I'm also going to be heading over to the Whole Foods market and Dekalb Farmers market to get prices on grass-fed beef and free-range chicken. I do use coupons for quite a bit of pantry-style products. So I think our budget can handle some of these items. I'll check Publix to see if they offer grass-fed beef and free-range chicken. I'm not interested in "organic", but grass-fed seems to be a little easier for us to digest rather than the corn-fed beef.
If you seen this, I'd love to read your thoughts and comments.
