What On Earth Are You Eating?

Do you ever people watch? I do sometimes, and one of the most interesting places to do this is the grocery store.  Actually, I think what I do could more acurately be defined as buggy watching, because I have a tendency to survey the grocery items in people's shopping carts. It amazes me to see the piles of frozen pizzas, pop tarts, cookies, and sodas. I'm not going to get on a soapbox, but in this age of childhood obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and fad diets, I would like to challenge you to think about what you and your family are eating.

Check out this Good Morning America video with author Michael Pollan. The simplest way for me to discribe Pollan is that is a food writer who has done a ton of research concerning where our food comes from, what's in it, and how it gets to our plates.

  1. I love to watch what people load up their carts with too. My favorite is the presumably single guys; a flat of pop, case of beer, stack of TV dinners, and chips.


Tell me what you think! All of your comments (non-bloggers as well) are welcome.
