2 Full Days Left – 30 Day Paleo Challenge

Well the first round of the 30 day paleo challenge starts Tuesday October 26th.  Are you prepared?

To help everyone I’m going to actually start a day early, and try to detail my preparations to give ideas for others.  Also I’m going to triple post these updates; so I’ll be everywhere and equally annoying in places.

I’ll be posting here on my blog, the 30 Day Paleo Challenge Facebook Page, and my twitter account.

So this fine Sunday morning I am off to the farmer’s market @ the NW corner of 48th st and Warner, then off to the state fair to go look at the animals, some of which may become available at a farmers market in not too long as food.

On that subject, don’t shy away from the way you get your food.  The beauty of a farmer’s market is you can ask, “how were the hens that laid these eggs treated?”  If you don’t get an answer that you feel ok with, keep moving.  The fact is, the animals that feed us (and are fed by us) can live lives that while not to old age, are built into their genes and they are the cowiest, chickenest, or piggiest existences they can be.  If you’ve seen “Food Inc.”, which I recommend, you know they’re lives are not that way in commercial production.  If you can’t afford, or choose not to, the higher cost of farmer’s market meat, that’s fine, but don’t do it blindly.  If you take you’re meat dollars out of the Wal-Mart (or whole foods) commercial meat production, then you display your displeasure.

There’s nothing evil about cheap food of any kind, nor any moral grace about more expensive food (even those “free range” Rosie chickens are not old time farm chickens).  So think about trying a farmer’s market, and asking tough questions.  Some people are happy to tell you all about it, others aren’t.  Vote with your wallet.  How do you want animals raised that you eat?  There’s no right answer, just preference.
