When I began this journey, it was simply to improve my health and wellness. As I continue to do more research into the practices of creating and distributing food in this country, I start to get tired. Tired of being lied to and manipulated. Tired of being led to believe that farms are happy places where the animals live nice lives and are milked and cared for by an old, good-hearted James Cromwell-esque man. Tired of being told that "cage-free" living is really so much better than chickens being caged. But I'll leave the ranting for a later date and share this enlightening interview given by Jonathan Safran Foer (Everything is Illuminated) on the "Ellen Show". His is also the author of Eating Animals which I am currently reading. I will be sharing my thoughts on the book when I finish but his research, insight, and knowledge is staggering and moving. He is just a regular guy who wonders why things in the food industry must be the way they are. Truly a fascinating man.
