Food, unincorporated

Still reeling from watching the documentary Food, Inc., and need to watch it again to write down the helpful, hopeful ideas listed at the end for eating healthier and more humanely to animals. The whole 'whole' foods thing is really about the cycle of nature. And the circle of life. All of the processed, genetically engineered products manufactured by food industry mega-conglomerates have just been one more way for people to become disconnected from themselves, each other, the animal world and the earth that is home to us all.

On the other end of the spectrum, you have Common Grounds Farm Stand in Charlotte, which opens for the summer season on June 1st. And markets like it all across the country offering fresh, local, organic, homemade eats that not only make you feel good but also glad to be alive. Common Grounds even goes a step further by creating one more wonderful link in the food chain: donating its proceeds to feed the hungry.
