I am very lucky that there are local farmers that bring their meats and eggs into the city year round, in addition to all the produce that is brought in at the summer farmer's markets. There is one year round farmer's market and companies that will make deliveries of current fresh foods from local farms.

The movie Food Inc covered the beef, chicken and pork industry and the bog feedlots that most of the grocery store meats come from.

I used to eat chicken till recently. I saw a video on the meat industry. This nasty method includes chicken as well as other meats. So now all I will to9uch is fish.

Hi, I found this team yesterday and have been on SP since February. I think I am definitely a Flexitarian. Most of my meals are Vegetarian, however I do still eat seafood and chicken/turkey. I eat very little beef and pork, but occasionally I just want it. I am so excited that the farmer's markets are coming back into the city!

Hi welcome, same here that's why this team is so great. However, if you need a little help in the eating healthy department, go to our team page and check out the thread I posted "Watch out for this ingredient!" I am more and more vegetarian, and certainly I will never eat processed food again!

Hello everyone, I'm Jessica. I am not a vegan or even a serious vegetarian. I do make every effort to eat as little animal products as I can. I just can't get some of the images out of my head on how animals are treated. So, I believe I am leaning heavily towards most of the time vegetarian, occassional animal products. I think that will help me in many ways and feel better. But, transitioning will be difficult, since I seem to have a very hard time wanting to change anything permenantly.
