Mr. Eco and I researched the benefits and concerns of eating a plant based diet. The conclusions we reached at this point in time are:
- Everything in moderation. We are not ready to cut red meat out of our diets completely; however, there is room to significantly cut back! We would also like to eat more fish.
- Try to be more healthy in the choices we make for food products. Grass-fed beef, free-range, local chicken and eggs, organic fruits and vegetables, growing more types of plants in our home garden.
- Be more sustainable in our own yard. More garden beds, fruit trees, rain catchers attached to the rain gutters...heck, we have even talked about a tilapia pool!
Lastly, I am going to leave you with the following postcard from the movie, Food, Inc. When I read the ten things I can do to change the food system, I noticed some points that I could work on. There is always room for improvement!
