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! :)
