Summer Reading

“Farmers’ markets are growing and so are organic food companies. While each might have a different approach, or even philosophy, the same consumer is shopping at both venues. Small farmers provide the heart and soul of the movement. The larger outlets provide the distribution muscle to bring the food to a bigger audience. The two camps often are at odds, but they need each other too” (Source).

“This is not scary. I’m not encouraging or dictating to people what they should eat. I’m not encouraging people to completely become vegans or anything like that. I’m simply asking people to look at the proportions of food that they eat. If they feel their diet is high in animal products and highly-processed foods but low in plants, they should really just swap those proportions” (Source).

“The abundance of food in the United States—enough calories to meet the needs of every man, woman, and child twice over—has a downside. Our overefficient food industry must do everything possible to persuade people to eat more—more food, more often, and in larger portions—no matter what it does to waistlines or well-being” (Source)
