I am passionate about getting out of debt and about real, healthy, sustainable, ecologically sound food. The latter passion is what I focus on here at diyNatural, and today am sharing a very informative video to help educate and inspire you.
The food industry
If you’ve watched any of the popular foodie movies in the last few years you should have some idea of the mind-blowing issues related to the food you eat. If you haven’t then I highly recommend watching any of the following movies:
There are other good movies – and books – on the topic, but this list will more than get you started.
Thanks to the information in these movies, along with several books, websites, and just sheer common sense… Betsy and I stopped eating “normal” a few years ago. Nowadays rather than shopping for food at our local grocery store, we go see our local farmers or hit local farmer’s markets.
The profit driven motives of the US food industry have forced us to find alternative, local sources for the foods we eat every day. And I’m happy to say that we’ve made a heck of a lot of progress over the last few years.
The unhealthy truth
Today I stumbled across an awesome YouTube video that I simply had to share with you.
The video is 18 minutes long and features an incredible speech from a woman named Robyn O’Brien. Here is a short bio on Robyn:
A Texas native raised on Twinkies and PoBoys, Robyn O’Brien is a critically-acclaimed author, researcher and mother of four who has leveraged her experience as a food industry analyst to uncover how one of life’s most basic activities – eating – has become a risk to our health. Her work has been praised by Ted Turner, Dr. Oz, Erin Brockovich and seen in the New York Times, on CNN, the Today Show and other media.
