The Last Resort: You Are What You Eat

A couple of months ago, my wife and I attended an interesting lecture by Michael Pollan  and it got me thinking differently about the food I eat and the food industry in general. I can't say I've changed how I eat much but at least I'm more aware of what I'm eating now. CAFO beef still tastes good and I'm still poor, so CAFO is what's for dinner. I should also say, I don't care how healthy you make a box of cereal...none of them taste better than a box of Froot Loops! 

Still, the Omnivore's Dilemma is worth the read and eating healthier is a good idea. I mean who wouldn't want to eat healthier sustainable food that isn't stuffed full of corn and antibiotics??? Unfortunately, eating healthy is for the rich and I'm getting poorer every day. Might as well laugh about it....here's the cartoon inspired by Michael Pollan's works.
