Last night, my sister came over to my place and brought a couple of movies for us to choose from. After much debate (with the hubby I might add), we decided to watch Food, Inc. I’ve heard a lot about this documentary and was eager to finally see what all the hype was about. Not that I didn’t think it had great information, but I thought it would possibly relay much of the information that we’ve been hearing for some time now about processed food.
Boy was I wrong! I like the approach that the directors took in this film. Hence the name, the documentary pertained to all that relates to the food that we eat; growing/breeding, distribution, the business side, etc. This is where I learned so much about the food that my family and I purchase and how high the demands are.
I won’t go too much into it as I know some of you might want to see it, but it is truly sad to see what our food has become what it is today. It is even more sad that farmers are prohibited to do what they do best, produce GOOD, WHOLESOME, FOOD!
I would highly recommend that you pick this one up! It is so important for us to understand where our food comes from and how it is treated before we serve it to our families.
