slow food

Sometimes fast food is unavoidable, like when we’re stranded at the airport or we’re driving hundreds of miles cross-country and not even an apple cannot be found. On those days, our choices are limited.

For most of us, we have choices to make every day, do we choose to eat food that may be quick but lacks nutrition or do we choose fresh food that is grown close to home without additives and pesticides. To me, the choice is obvious.
Eat slow food grown closest to home, the food not only tastes better but it also supports local community agriculture, which in the long run, will feed many more than a fast-food chain who runs the risk of running out of Idaho-grown russet potatoes or turning back to genetically modified foods to satisfy an ever-increasing demand for burgers and fries.

    Somehow in all my shuffling, I deleted Art and Lemons from my blogroll. My humblest apologies and 1000 pardons.

    More and more I like the idea of growing my own food. Too bad I kill everything I plant.
