What you Need to Know!
Sorry for the delay! With a banana-orange fruit juice: And a snack of sourdough bread with Earth Balance. As in, I did not really think about where my food came from and the impact my choices had on the environment or animals.
Not all meat is factory farmed, of course. However, the vast majority of meat and dairy comes from factory farms, and that disturbs me. Sometimes, you might learn a bunch of information and decide you can take Tipping point crap, leave some. Because I believe that every positive effort you make is important and worthwhile.
That does NOT mean that I am perfect. Food is very personal, and all I can hope to do is educate people about why I do the things I do.
