My doctor taught me just how ignorant he was when it comes to health and its relationship to nutrition and lifestyle choices. I have heard that MD's only have about 2 weeks worth of nutrition classes/instruction and it was proven to me by his ignorance/denial of the facts.
"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food", as Hippocrates so wisely said many moons ago.
Chemicals with every bite...unless you choose organic! Think I'm wrong, guess again. Educate yourself and KNOW where your food is coming from, that is if you care about your health.
+JMJ+ Today I am grateful for eyes wide open.

About FreshFRESH is more than a film; it is a reflection of a rising movement of people and communities who are re-inventing our food system. FRESH celebrates the food architects who offer a practical vision of a new food paradigm and consumer access to it. Encouraging individuals to take matters into their own hands, FRESH is a guide that empowers people to take an array of actions as energetic as planting urban gardens and creating warm composts from food waste, and as simple as buying locally-grown products and preserving seasonal produce to eat later in the year.
Throughout the film, we encounter the most inspiring people, ideas, and initiatives happening around the country right now. At the Growing Power urban farm in Milwaukee, Will Allen is turning three acres of industrial wasteland into a mecca of nutrition for his neighborhood. In Kansas City, we witness David Ball revitalize his community, turning the modern concept of the Supermarket on its head by stocking his stores with produce from a cooperative of local farmers. And, we journey to Joel Salatin’s farm in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley to witness his methods for closing the nutrient cycle, allowing cows, chickens, pigs and natural grasses to flourish and produce without ever an ounce of chemical fertilizer or industrial animal feed.
FRESH tells the stories of 'real people' rediscovering 'real food'. FRESH represents a powerful way for you to educate yourself and your community on living a healthy, local and sustainable life through food.
