I was inspired this morning by Christy Hardin Smith at her blog Home Celebration. She got me thinking about ways to connect some dots about food, health, and justice.
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.”
