Three's Company

These 3 white narcissus are growing right in my front yard. So happy I could extend their beauty past their life.

On another note, many of you know that I don't eat meat or poultry, and only the occasional bit of seafood. There are so many reasons for this that I won't bore you with them now.

With my diet in mind, I am always on the lookout for the latest news in the American diet and related topics. There's a movie going to air on PBS's POV called Food Inc. You can watch a short piece of it here:
http://video.pbs.org/video/1402965302

I've seen a few more scenes from it than in this short trailer, and you don't have to be vegetarian or vegan or pescetarian to appreciate what this film has to convey.

It's a real eye-opener to where our food comes from and who is controlling what we have available to us. I hope you'll watch the film when it airs on your local PBS station and then take action with your grocery dollars by only buying what is good and healthy for us all.

OK, I'm stepping off my soapbox now. Happy weekend!

Peace, Judi

Hello Judi, happy spring. Your flowers are beautiful.

Thanks for sharing. I've been a vegetarian for nearly 20 years and try to make conscious food choices for my body and the planet. I'll certainly look into the film you mention. Have a a fabulous weekend.

I didn't realize you are a vegetarian, glad you pointed that out. So much fun discovering all the different foods, isn't it?
