Boycott Food? On National Food Day? (October 24, 2011)
. . .
A “At least the processed junk.”
B “That is the way to celebrate National Food Day. Prepare and enjoy one healthy meal and let it become habit forming.”
A “We ingest so much junk in such massive quantities. We commit slow suicide every day and haul far more weight around on our musculoskeletal system than its design capacity. We need to secure our food closer to the farm and the field and consume it in smaller quantities.”
B “That may require fundamental lifestyle changes. Families, when they exist, are fractured and eat at different times on the run from a bag in the car. Eating is most efficient and enjoyable when a meal is prepared for a group and shared over conversation.”
A “Slow food poisoning, I tell you. Meat is the big killer. Too many resources are devoured supplying us with meat. Some meat, maybe, but in much smaller quantities.”
B “Go green; eat plants.”

“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” Michael Pollan
Eat less meat; enjoy more plants.
Exercise your mouth less and your feet more.
Get your food close to the farm and the field.
