Yesterday I wrote up this blog post that was pretty good, well written with several researched links. It was one of my more serious posts about the current state of food in America. It was predicated by a community gathering I attended last night at one of Riverside's newer restaurants, Health's Kitchen. Health's Kitchen produces healthy food made with mainly local produce and food grown on farms in the area. I was surprised to find out their are at least 19 farms in the immediate Riverside area. This I found out by visiting the Riverside Food Co-op's display.
The gathering was one in a series of events leading up to the Third Annual Grow Riverside Conference March 21. I have been a supporting member of the Riverside Food Co-op for about a year or so. I believe a good co-op would be a good thing and I would shop there because it is local .
Anyway, that satisfies my need to recreate the lost blog. And it also brings important information to you. And even if you are not in the Riverside area, it is something you should seek out in your own community. When you think so much of our supposedly "fresh" produce and food travels thousands of miles from South America, Mexico, Asia and other places, well, you begin to wonder just what those foods we are consuming do to our bodies and even our minds.
Oh, and about that lost blog. I was just finishing editing it when I must have hit the wrong key and it disappeared. POOF! I hate when that happens. And every once in a while it does. Sigh. But we soldier on. And another day dawns.
