|Lots of Farming in My Paese and Surrounding Areas|
Lately I've been thinking much about the food we eat. I've been thinking about gentically modified foods, Monsanto, antibiotics, free-range chickens, organic, biologico, high fructose corn syrup, whole grains, local products, American beef, Round Up, raw milk, biodinamico, seasonal products, Asiago cheese, brands and products to avoid, the cost of organic. I try to make sense of all of the conflicting information that I read, always considering the source. It's a lot for one to ponder, believe me. Making the change in the way my family eats isn't all that difficult, but knowing exactly what change is most effective seems a mystery to me at times. So I read more, discuss with people interested in these topics (Did you know that not everyone is interested?), and ponder, ponder, ponder.
And you, what have you been pondering of late?
