    Lee- We're big fans of Michael Pollan. He really has brought some great issues to the general public. By being a "normal" guy; not a producer, distributor or otherwise connected to the food industry he really has helped a lot of people better understand food culture in layman's terms. For a more in depth (if frightening) look at agribusiness, try "The End of Food" by Paul Roberts. Fabulous site - thanks for putting it together! The more we all talk, the more people will realize it is time for a change!

    Hey Lee - made the stop in the coffee aisle yesterday and picked up some two pounds of Peace Coffee, one decaf & one Twin Cities blend. I'm sipping on it now, and, although I'm far from being a connoisseur, I do like a good cup of coffee, and this is really, really good stuff. Thanks for continuing to share your thoughts - makes this foodie's life easier!

    Ah yes, the important part! Big Bull Jerky has done my digestive system no harm, although I can't say the same for my breath.

    While I love beef jerky, I rarely buy it, for 2 reasons: 1) is the fear of whatever is added to it that allows it to sit in a plastic container in a truck stop for several months without going "bad." And 2) is the after effect is has on my digestive system, not that it really bothers me, but my wife won't allow it. Based on your post Lee, I think you have found the solution to number 1, but I will need to test out number 2 (no pun intended). Do you have any relevant experiences to share?

  • 8 years 1 week ago by: Lisa in reply to: Food4Thought.com: Bringing CSAs to Your Doorstep
    Hi Lee, It's funny how I actually had no idea a "food box" was known as a CSA... although I think your Food4Thought company is more to what the "food box" concept I've had experience with in the Canadian cities I've lived in- the delivery aspect is what I find so appealing living in an urban setting. Your posts are interesting and filled with good info! Thanks for sharing :) I will definitely be checking in! Kudos on organizing more community events as well (sustainable dinner). I think that is forward and daring. Blessings! Lisa
