Ethical Eating

Today, on Speaking of Faith, they replayed Krista Tippett's interview with Barbara Kingsolver regarding her book "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle." If you get a chance, try to listen to it. With the UUA adopting Ethical Eating as their next statement issue, it is a good place to start to really understand the importance of the topic. Kingsolver has a very self-effacing way of interviewing while making pretty strong statements. Of course, I would also recommend reading her book. It is an interesting read with some great, seasonal recipes thrown in. If you really want to delve into the topic, pick up Michael Pollen's books "The Omnivore's Dilemma" and "In Defense of Food." Or, go for the original "Diet for a Small Planet" by Frances Moore Lappe.

With the prevelance of eating disorders among young people, this resolution scares me. I hope the folks pushing this are aware of these disorders and understand the unintended impacts they be inviting. You really need some pros to guide you here.
