The Food and Climate Connection from WhyHunger on Vimeo.
The video is a beautiful introduction to justice relating to food production. I am challenged to be more intentional about my part of the food cycle: choosing what to eat and where to buy.
I recommend Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life. It's about a family's year-long commitment to eating only locally-produced seasonal food.
My next book to read is Frances Moore Lappe's book Getting A Grip 2: Clarity, Creativity and Courage for the World We Really Want. I plan to participate in the discussion when Christy hosts a FireDogLake Book Salon with Frances Moore Lappe on August 28 at 5:00 p.m. ET.
These are steps I hope will lead me to live in a healthier way personally and to participate in a more just world. I'm sure I will have more to say about healthy living after my great big yearly checkup appointment on Wednesday.
P.S. Found Back to Basics, a site that describes itself interested in some of my favorite food-related things: "gluten free, vegetarian, and agricultural policy issues, reviews and news."
