Our friend, Big Shamu, is THE prize winner fer the always fantastic food photography--an' the food she dishes up is succulent, interesting and jes' fun. Tonight when I visited her blog, Karmic Kitchen, the topic was "food porn" featurin' an ole Gourmet Magazine cover. Beautiful stuff, fun stuff (ole' packin' crates wif' fabulous artistry).
Now the thang is, when I go to Shamu's KK, I is re-inspired that food is SUPPOSED to be good an' good fer ya.
Yet more an' more I'se movin' away from restaurants and lots of foods--why?
Well, funny ya should ask. Oh shure, droppin' a few pounds is always a good idea...but it ain't that. Nope. It is...
F O O D T E R R OR !!
It ain't no joke, chillens'.
Consumer Reports reports that 39% of bagged salat greens is contaminated wif' fecal coliforms . Iffin' that doan gag ya' what does?
Now think on that a bit. Iffin' 39% comes wif' fecal contamination already IN IT, then what is the % after unclean kitchen practices in various restaurants, fast food chains etc. is finished handling your food?
Then--well, first, y'all recall how Aunty is a fierce opponent of the dreaded Monsanto Terminator Technology? AN' how I'se written reams on this afore? (see archives 4.03.06 on FRONT Porch, an' BACK Porch for 7.23.06)
Monsanto (makers of Agent Orange) is the world's leadin' biocide conglomerate. Their goal is to control the seeds of the world by making normal seed prey to the terminator seeds of their genetically modified strains of every edible species. It is worth a book--or two or ten.
Anyhoo--despite their massive PR spin an' outright falsified "studies" word does leak out that the poison they cause is KILLING us.
Animals fed wif' Monsanto's GMO corn become poisonous food fer humans--it attacks yore liver an' kidneys --yep. them organs is how ya filter the yucky stuff ya eat, so now even the organs that should hep ya survive a food terror is now attacked. We jes' cain't win in the food sweepstakes.
How does ya know iffin' the pork or beef or chicken youse consumin' has been fed this monster-fied corn? Ya doan't--an thas' the trouble. Ya cain't hardly find no meat wif'out this biocidal IED in it at yore grocery.
What ya' wanna do is get wif' the local natural farmers. They need yore support. We need them to flourish so that we have an alternative--I mean, really now, NONE of the BIG meat conglomerates is free of Monsanto mutant feed grains.
But thar's some hope--more an' more folks is interested in real food. Here is jes' one link to a ranchin' company--TallGrass Beef--that raises pasture/ grass fed beef. NO corn fed steer.
I know it is expensive--so we eat less, but we eat safer. Yore organs will thank ya'!
