I just finished watching Food, Inc. Great Movie! The take home message is to buy local, and in season food! If you haven’t seen the movie yet, did you know you can download and “rent” the movie to watch from Amazon for $2.99! I just realized this! Right under “Buy”, you click WATCH IT NOW, $2.99 to rent.
Although I’ve mentioned them before, after watching the movie, I was so glad we buy our meat local (beef and pork at least). If you live in Utah and are looking for a local meat supplier, you must check out The Christiansens farm for well fed, well treated, organic, and super awesome meat! Hollie Christiansen is my neighbors- sister.. which is how I found out about their farm.

Last night, I pulled out our bag of frozen Edamame to snack on while I prepared dinner. The kids devoured it! I forgot how much they liked this great snack the first time I bought it. It’s definitely coming out more often this week.
