After watching Food Inc. I start frantically texting my friends little nuggets of “new” information that I had learned.
“You should’ve chosen the blue pill ” John and Nattie tell me.
It’s a reference from The Matrix.
No, I have never seen it. Yes, I know, it came out over 10 years ago. NO, I’m not kidding you.
So, I watch The Matrix. It was a very intense, thought provoking movie for me.
My head feels like it is about to explode.
And shouldn’t it? Everything I ever thought I knew about food has been wrong. And what about all the stuff I never even thought to think about?
Organic local foods, imported apples from China, vegan, animal cruelty, genetically modified, hormonally enhanced, government subsidiary, farming, high frutose corn syrup, Foodborne Illness, Nutritional Labels on Restaurant Food, Diabetes and Obesity, Factory Farming, Genetic Engineering, Pesticides, The Global Food Crisis, Monsanto….
“This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.”
twirling down the rabbit hole….. and moving forward,
