Given the horrific practices behind the industrial food production in the US, I’m darn near a vegetarian. While I love good animal flesh, the problem is there is so little of it which appears safe.
Every day Monsanto tries a new trick to grab total monopoly control. It won’t matter if they are so deeply evil they would cynically push poisons on us; that’s hard to prove. But monopoly ambitions in “efficient food production” is evil enough. And if it’s poisonous, they don’t want to know, or us to know.
So I spend a lot of money at so-called “health food” stores, and a few local providers I have come to trust. We get bison meat from Wichita, Kansas, because we can’t find anything suggesting they do evil with the animals. We sometimes get grass-fed beef, and I wish I could afford goat’s milk, but we settle for cow’s milk guaranteed produced without hormone injections. I realize there are some things we simply cannot get that is actually pure and natural. I probably couldn’t afford some of it if I could find it.
Fast food and most restaurants are out. I no longer eat sweets, except stuff made at home — with a lot less sugar. I’ve become very fond of beans and rice. I’ll buy a lot of stuff made in Europe or other places which restrict GMOs and such.
These are habits on the way, because I still believe we are headed for a painful situation where pretty much all imports will cease. That’s because the dollar will be worthless and no one will take it. Since we make so little here these days, that will be a real shock. We may be lucky to eat anything at all, soon.
