Elizabeth from Prancing Leopard here: I’m a big fan of documentaries (see the post about “Tapped” below!) When I watched “Food, Inc.”, I had no idea how much of an impact it would end up having on my life! Check out the trailer below:
As you can see from the trailer, this thought-provoking film raises a lot of questions and issues, and forces you to see things that are usually ignored or covered up. Out of sight, out of mind, right? But once I watched it for myself, I could no longer ignore what was happening or how I felt about it, so I gradually transitioned myself to a vegetarian diet.
Aside from feeling good ethically, the physical changes are great too! I’m not tired and/or hungry all the time, I’m sleeping better at night, my skin is clear, and I just feel good.
By no means am I saying that everyone should be vegetarian or change their diet any specific way, because that is a very personal choice. Nor is that what the documentary is necessarily trying to persuade you to do, however it definitely raises some interesting questions about food and the food industry. And, like the trailer says, you will never look at dinner the same way again.
Have you ever seen “Food, Inc” or any others like it? (”Food Matters” is another good one!) What is your opinion on them? What reasons do you have for being vegetarian, or not? Join in the discussion on Facebook!
