Today's blog post title is inspired by Slow Food. This organization strives to encourage biodiversity in foods and counteract the fast food movement. Spreading awareness of the issues behind today's fast food culture and connecting consumers with their local farmers, are just two of the ways that Slow Food is using to help people rediscover the enjoyment of eating. I have always believed that people take the simple act of eating for granted. No one truly appreciates a good, properly cooked meal anymore. C'mon. Think about it. Why bother cooking when McDonalds is right around the corner? But do you think about where that hamburger from McDonalds comes from? Or perhaps the fries? Probably not. Why bother? It's food made fast and convenient. Perfect for the world today. However, the reality is that fast food harms more than it helps.
Oh, and here's the video for today. This chef is proposing to change school lunch menus, basing them around more sustainable and healthier foods. It's a bit long but extremely eye opening. Definitely a must watch.
