Food, and Eating It

Why, you may ask, do food choices matter? Beyond their obvious nutritional role in keeping us alive, of course.

The type of food you buy (and the places you buy it from, but we’ll get to that Friday)influences the trends that purchasers at grocery stores see. The more demand for quality food the purchaser sees, the more it will be made available. The more growers are pressured to produce quality, pesticide free, fair trade, etc, food, the more they will produce of it–and the less low quality food will be sent out into the world. Less low quality food also means fewer toxins added to the environment. Think about it. You’re voting with every bite you take–even if you don’t care about politics, you’re participating in them. Think about what you want your vote to mean.

Food. It’s what’s for dinner.
