Currently reading and watching...

The introduction alone makes this book amazing, validating, and inviting. I can't wait to read more.
So many great ways to make simple changes. Sometimes trying to be environmentally responsible can feel totally overwhelming...Tracey makes it do-able with practical steps that you can choose from. I love this book. I checked it out from the library, but would love to own it as a great reference book. So far I have cancelled all yellow pages that are delivered to our door, cancelled all junk mail and catalogs, and have found an organic fair-trade coffee (from Target!) that is pretty yummy.
This is the first book I picked up from the library after watching "Food Inc" and I am still trudging my way through it. It's a bit dry. And I tend to read at night before bed. Which means I'm only getting like 2 pages in before my eyes start to roll back. But I'm not giving up on this one.

Watched this film before bed the other night.
Don't watch this movie before bed.
Pretty much cemented me into never eating any kind of meat or poultry ever again.

Try reading Barbara Kingsolver's "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" for a good take on green living and food.

Keep exploring.

we are on the same food journey, Cath. Pollan has a much shorter book--Food Rules--that is super easy to get through. I need to check out that Fortytude book. Especially since I am quickly on my way to late fortytude. :0)
