The author of today’s article cuts through the fluff that often dominates the conversation surrounding our food using science and logic.
If you’re like me, you have ambiguous, internal fears about your food choices, but you can’t clearly articulate why you avoid certain products. So, we let faulty science and fear-mongering fuel our buying habits.
We need to ask hard questions about our food. We need to be informed consumers who act on conviction versus fear, because when fear dominates the conversation we are distracted from talking about the topics that need our attention.
Today’s article helps us cut through the BS so that we can eat with confidence and start having a constructive conversation about what we’re eating and why.
Questions for thought:
Where do you find info about your food? I’m a big fan of hearing from farmers and scientists, with a good dose of theology and philosophy thrown in for good measure. I try not to be influenced by passing comments made on recipe blogs and social media. Check out my resource post for a good place to start.
What questions should we ask about our food? We need to question about U.S. agriculture and our eating habits. Instead of questioning the safety of non-organic produce, what if we asked how we can provide affordable produce to food deserts? I realize scenarios like these aren’t necessarily an either/or scenario, but they do reframe the situation and spur thankfulness for what we have.
