Keeping Up With Your Food
Sustainable eating, organic foods, cruelty free foods, free range chickens, and, nest eggs are just some of the words floating around the food industry these days. Sometimes it’s hard to keep track of everything that’s going on. And just recently, Nightline did a story on the City Council of Chicago and the recent ban on Foie Gras.
This delicacy is obtained at great expense to the ducks and geese who provide their livers for it and the council members decided that it was their mission to make food safer for the consumer and less cruel for the livestock. And whether you agree with this or not, it has garnered a lot of media attention lately. Should the government be involved in what we eat and how it’s produced, or should the consumer vote with their wallet?
If you’re concerned about where your food comes from, or just trying to lower your meat intake, you should try some of these great vegetarian recipes.
