I just finished reading a variety of twitter updates and blog posts on a talk given @poptech today by food journalist and activist, Michael Pollan. Here are three things he said that I feel would be beneficial to all of us:
1. Plant a garden. If you invest $70 in a home garden you can yield $600 worth of organic produce per year.
2. Get back in the kitchen and cook. Gain control of the food you eat by making it yourself and involving your families.
3. Stop eating in front of the television and the computer and inside your car. Americans (everyone) should work harder to bring back the meal as the sacred communal activity that it is.
If you’re already doing these things, please continue to do so and encourage others to follow your example.
