Have you ever heard of the Slow Food Movement? I heard about it a year ago but I did not really pay attention to it. I just thought that it would be a good thing to share the idea with you guys, as many of you might want to adopt this movement.
So what is the Slow Food Movement? Their philosophy is:
Slow Food is good, clean and fair food. We believe that the food we eat should taste good; that it should be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or our health; and that food producers should receive fair compensation for their work.
Their mission is:
Slow Food works to defend biodiversity in our food supply, spread taste education and connect producers of excellent foods with co-producers through events and initiatives.
As you may surmise, this movement involves organic produce a lot. And I do not need to tell you that eating organic translates to healthy eating. I have to be honest, however, and state outright that being part of this movement is not that appealing to me. Call me callous and insensitive, but I do not think that it is possible for me to consume purely organic food. I believe that I can eat healthily without going to this extreme. I do respect and even admire the people behind this movement.
What about you? What do you think of slow food?
