It's easy to forget

Being so consumed with all of our daily activities, most of the time, we tend to forget about how the food we eat was produced. Now, with this huge beef recall looming over our heads it's hard not to think about it.

What are we doing to our food system and will this ever stop? I wonder if all of us could stop for a moment and think. What is all this abuse the animal has to endure doing to our bodies after we eat our big juicy steak? Does the meet somehow hold onto the toxic emotion? I know what happens to us when we are under allot of stress. Not too healthy are we?

It is just so sad that our society has stooped down to this level in the treatment of our animals. Maybe we should all think about limiting our intake of meet. You know, it's those big factory farms that are producing all those greenhouse gases anyway. I know, I know, it's hard for some of you to give it up. Looking down at your plate with lentils and couscous just doesn't feel the same does it? Well, if you do buy beef or chicken you can always look for a local farm in your area that supports organic sustainable agriculture. It's better than the alternative!

We leave you with Proverbs 12:10
Good people are good to their animals;
the "good-hearted" bad people kick and abuse them.

Feed your kids well! :)

Don't forget to check out all the other good information on the Natural News website. Tons and tons of good stuff!

Hey moms out there! Want a cool and fun way to pack your kids lunch? It's fun for you and for your child. I just bought the Laptop Lunch System and what a hit that is!! My son has told me he is not going to buy hot lunch again! Plus, he says, "It's very popular. " I guess his friends gather around to see what is in his lunch each day. How cool is that! It is designed so when you open the box you see everything which makes it very eye appealing. The containers are bright colors and when you add colorful food it makes it even better. Check out some photos of what people have come up with. Photos

This is so cool, even for the moms, because it gets your creative juices flowing. It's like a surprise for your child each day. Makes eating healthy fun again and of course popular!! Now, who doesn't like that?

Enjoy your day today, and eat healthy!!!
