OK, I'm still a little afraid.
I'm afraid to read Robyn's book, "The Unhealthy Truth ", because in it I know she will explain, in detail, what she found doing her OWN research,
as a mom,
And here is just a smidgen of WHY you should not be afraid to read the book.
The GOOD news is that there are companies like Stonyfield who support local, organic farmers. There are organic restaurants like Restaurant Nora, host of this event, who also support our local, organic farms. And, according to Robin, even big brands like Walmart and Coca Cola offer chemical-free versions of their products in other countries! WHY? Because the mother's in Canada, the UK, New Zealand, and other countries said so!
See how powerful we moms can be?
So let's be brave together.
Let's read "The Unhealthy Truth " with eyes and ears wide open.
Let's make some small changes in our food consumption starting with organic milk, yogurt, and cheese.
If we feel it affecting our financial status we will make adjustments - Meatless Monday anyone?
And maybe we'll be motivated to get some laws changed.
LET'S DO IT FOR OUR KIDS!
Disclosure: I ate a delicious lunch, met an inspiring mother / author, sampled some deeelicious yogurt (really, try the caramel flavor!), and received a gift bag courtesy of Stonyfield. I was under no obligation to write or even talk about what I saw, heard, and learned but boy - how could I not?? All opinions are mine.
