Thanks to farm subsidies, the fine collaboration between
by Mark Bittman

Thanks to farm subsidies, the fine collaboration between
agribusiness and Congress,
soy, corn and cattle became king.
And chicken soon joined them on the throne.
It was during this period that the cycle of dietary
and planetary destruction began,
the thing we're only realizing just now.
- Mark Bittman

- Mark Bittman

 

Our demand for meat, dairy and refined carbohydrates -

Let me pose you a question.
Can farm-raised salmon be organic when its feed has
nothing to do with its natural diet,
even if the feed itself is supposedly organic,
and the fish themselves are packed tightly in pens,
swimming in their own filth?
- Mark Bittman

The USDA is not our ally here.
We have to take matters into our own hands,
not only by advocating for a better diet for everyone -
and that's the hard part -
but by improving our own.
And that happens to be quite easy.
Less meat, less junk, more plants.
- Mark Bittman

The sad thing is, when it comes to diet,
is that even when well-intentioned Feds try to do right by us,

or they are puppets of agribusiness.
- Mark Bittman

Our "Rainbows and Butterflies" are the small miracles of our life -
the little things that are so easy to overlook,
yet so awe inspiring when we take a moment
to notice and to pay attention.
Give thanks for the rainbows, for the butterflies,
for all God's creatures - large and small,
for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain,
for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The moment you become miserly you are closed
to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.
The moment you start clinging to things,
you have missed the target.

you, your innermost being, is the target -
not a beautiful house, but a beautiful you;
not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
- Osho
