What a GREAT eye-opener Food, Inc was! Actually, much of it was not a surprise...lol. Beware those food factories...!

I love Michael Pollan's advice!

Have you seen "Food, Inc,"? After that it's hard to eat anything that didn't grow up in front of you.

I eat them only once in a while. Mostly I eat organic turkey breast slices as far as deli items go. I still eat a hotdog now and then. Pepperoni...love it, but don't buy that any more. I guess just like anything else...make substitutes and stop slowly. Cheese is more difficult for me!

Good post, DDO-ORN!!

I can do it!!

I will admit to an old holdover food choice from my dedicated Atkins days: processed meats such as deli meat, salami, pepperoni. During the past few months as I have been trying to get down to a "normal" weight I have given all of those up and now only eat "real" and unprocessed (relatively) meats.

Today's news of a salmonella outbreak in Italian sausage had me SO RELIEVED that I have given up this kind of meat!

Here's the alert:

Perhaps this can be an incentive for any of you or those you know to consider doing the same...?
