This post has actually been sitting around, accumulating bits of information, for a few months. I think it’s time to finally get it out of my drafts and into the real world.
Have you read the August issue of Delight gluten free Magazine? Did you notice who wrote the candy article?
YourBelly.com is a new, free resource for finding places to safely eat gluten-free. It’s grown quite a bit since I was first told about it, and I imagine it will grow even more.
And for my friends across the pond and for those lucky travelers, there is a blog all about eating out in London called The Gluten Free Foodie, including reviews of places with great gf rolls, breads, or pastas.
As of June, there was supposed to be a new food documentary in theaters. I never saw anything else about it (and I feel really bad that this got lost in my inbox), but you can read the description from Stonyfield Farms:
You’ll never look at dinner the same way!
You’ll be reading and seeing lots of stories in the coming weeks about FOOD, Inc., a very powerful documentary about our food system. The film opens June 12 nationwide, and includes Stonyfield Farm CE-Yo Gary Hirshberg. It’s produced by the same folks who brought us Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth.”
FOOD, Inc looks at how food is grown, processed and sold, and the people behind the system – the company ‘suits,’ the struggling farmers, the mega-processors, the exploited workers and the confused consumers — some of whom have paid the ultimate price for trusting a food system that’s lost its way.
Gary’s main message in FOOD, Inc is that you have the power to demand that our food system produces food that is safe to eat. You want to know your choices are the right ones for your baby, your family and yourself.
Stonyfield is proud to be part of this film and prouder still that the questions raised in FOOD, Inc. point to organic food as the answer to the issues of food safety, corporate greed, and the oppression that puts many family farmers and others out of business.
We encourage you to learn more about FOOD, Inc. and share that info with your readers — turns out that what they decide to put on their plates truly has an impact on their health and the health and sustainability of our planet.
