Happy Friday…Another Movie About How The Way We Eat is F$@ked

Happy Friday! I tried to change the title of this to: Another Movie About How The Way We Eat is F$@ked but because I am reblogging it I can’t…more interesting to me than the video are the comments at Grist.org. Also Holly over at Grist seems to think the last image in this video ruins it credibility – given it’s a promo from a larger film I think it probably is a movie about how all our processed and mechanized food is bad for us and making us fat….so I didn’t have a problem with it. What do you think? Leave a comment….


“The food system that has come about exists only to feed us humans,” Upworthy writes. We weren’t aware we were eating humans, but the site makes a good point nonetheless with a chilling snippet from the documentary Samsara:

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note: urbanfoodguy@gmail.com
