Food Thoughts

I've been a vegetarian for a while now, and most of you have probably already heard that my reason for not eating meat is that it is bad for the environment. This recent NY Times article pretty much covers why eating meat is bad for the environment in just two pages. I'm not suggesting that anyone become a vegetarian, I just want everyone to think about the broader impact of there actions. In today's global economy, nothing is simple. Every product takes a very long and usually dirty journey to get to your hands. If everyone could alter your actions slightly they could have a vast impact. Sorry for th eco rant. I'll leave you with a quote form Michael Pollan who wrote The Omnivore's Delima. “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
