Very good program about the Slow Food Movement...

I looked up this program to bookmark and watch again later.  Since I thought some of you would like it, too, I am sharing it here instead of bookmarking. 

It is from the BYU Channel program called Fresh Take.  A group of Utah "foodies" came together with the hostess to talk about eating fresh food, locally grown when possible... and the Slow Food Movement.

Which as they say, is cooking food the way your grandmother cooked it.  Only about 25 minutes long!  Enjoy!  (Subscribers by e-mail will probably have to watch the video by coming on over to the blog.)

Hi Brenda;
I had a little trouble watching this, it seemed to stop now and than and took a minute or so to continue. But I did get to watch all of it/ It was very interesting! Will keep this in mind when it is time for my next grocery store visit. Love and Hugs, Nana

I am going to make this my afternoon watching. I have tried to load it, but it's having some hitches. What a beautiful setting for a meal and I know that I will appreciate their thoughts. Will allow it to load right here so this will throw off your stats. Sorry about that!

Nope. I tried to get it to reload and at 8:51 it just shuts down and grinds and grinds trying to move forward. I did enjoy watching those first few minutes. While I don't agree with everything said, I do agree that we could all do better. I laughed at the idealized "normal as in what grandmother fed you" because my grandmother certainly fed me some wholesome, local, slow food (hermits come to mind); however, she was just as likely to make me toast and slather it with marshmallow fluff. And, here in my corner, if we were to rely on only local produce, our selections would be extremely limited and, in my opinion, punitive.

Good food for thought. Perhaps it all comes back to some sense of balance. Giving up McDonald's would seem punitive to me as well. LOL!

I just watched the video and it was so good. Lots of great ideas for people who want to take control of what they are feeding themselves and their families. Also supporting local farmers and growers!

It's the smart way to go!

Thanks for the link.
