Documentary Review: Food, Inc.

In this house we love to watch movies documentaries 🙂 Lately, of course, we are loving anything to do with food, agriculture, etc. There are quite a few that we’ve watched so we’ll consider this a little….mini-series 🙂 DISCLAIMER: You’re going to think I’m a nut when you read these documentaries, but I promise you they are thought-provoking and interesting. We’ll start with Food, Inc.–which is the movie that really made me begin to question the food industry and what is in my food. I think it might have been made to make people vegetarians because there are some horrifying scenes with the way the major meat industries treat cows, pigs, and chickens. It is really sad….like, almost put you in tears, sad. They also talk about the things put into your foods and how the food industries are treating farmers. Did you know farmers can’t take seed from their harvest and clean it to use it again?!?!? At least in the soybean industry. It is INSANE!!! There’s also a very, very sad story about a little boy that ate McDonald’s in the movie, so prep yourself for that one. We rarely eat out and definitely not fast food (unless we’re traveling or something), but after I watched this, Little O was *never, ever* to eat a burger from Mickey D’s again…..did I say EVER?!? It is a really good documentary, that will make you think about where you buy your food and what you’re buying (if you have Netflix, it’s on Instant Streaming, so you should go watch it….now!) Let me know your thoughts!

PS- I’m so sorry I have been MIA lately! I’ve been obsessed with making Little O ruffle-bottomed pants and appliquing shirts for her. We also had visitors from out of town this weekend and I have a couple friends that are wanting to buy some pants for their little girls, so I’ve been trying to get together pictures of Little O’s pants and come up with reasonable prices for them. I promise I’m going to do better, but I don’t know that I can post on here every day. I hope you aren’t too disappointed in me!
