The Farm-to-Table Movement has also rapidly gained in popularity, as more and more locavores and foodies strive to purchase all or most of their food locally.
An increasing number of chefs plan their menus for the day by sourcing vegetables and meats from local farmers or farmer’s markets. Some restaurants even have their own organic vegetable gardens, serving their own home-grown vegetables.
Good for your body AND your soul too!

There is a food revolution happening in America today. People are seeking out farmers' markets, organic produce and good restaurants. At the same time, our food supply is increasingly controlled by multi-national corporations. Over the past 10 years, with the advent of genetic engineering and the massive expansion of pesticide companies, like Monsanto, into the seed business, the very nature of our food system has radically changed with potentially disastrous effects on our food security. Patenting of life is now permitted, no labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMO's) in food is required, research is conducted on these issues by universities beholden to the "agri-corps" who fund them, and the major regulatory agencies are run by former execs from these very companies. All the while, the average citizens remain blissfully unaware that they are eating GMO food and supporting the aggressive "corporatization' of their food sources. In fascinating and accessible terms, 'The Future of Food' illuminates the major issues ultimately affecting us all -- some surreal, some futuristic, many frightening. Yet, 'The Future of Food' is a hopeful film, featuring insightful and moving interviews with farmers, agriculture and business experts and policymakers. It sees a future in which an informed consumer can join the revolution by demanding natural, healthy food sources that insure environmental integrity.
Amazon's expansion plans are a potential threat to grocery chains such as Kroger Co, Safeway Inc and Whole Foods Market, as well as general-merchandise retailers Wal-Mart Stores Inc and Target Corp, which also sell a lot of groceries.
Most likely for non-perishables!

Greenpeace has released its 2013 Carting Away the Oceans (CATO) report, which ranks American supermarkets on their sustainable seafood policies.
In previous years only Safeway and Whole Foods have earned the ‘green rating’, but this year Trader Joe’s joins them on the green list.
Greenpeace has also praised Walmart for introducing both fish aggregating device (FAD)-free skipjack and pole-and-line albacore in more than 3,000 stores across the country.
The CATO report gives each supermarket a score of 0-10, based on a variety of factors, including the sale of ‘red list’ seafood, engagement with conservation initiatives, transparency of supply, and the establishment of cohesive internal policies.
Wegmans, SUPERVALU and Trader Joe’s have also taken strong stands to protect the delicate Zhemchug and Pribilof Canyons of the Bering Sea, home to the billion dollar pollock industry. The report also showcases other key issues facing the seafood industry, such as a need for more transparency at point-of-sale and a growing groundswell of opposition to genetically modified salmon, a product that numerous major retailers have already pledged not to sell.
“It’s hard to believe that brands like Kroger, Publix & BI-LO are continuing to sell tuna that’s sourced using destructive fishing methods, and sell red list species that are struggling for survival,” said Casson Trenor, Greenpeace Senior Markets Campaigner. “This seems so far out of step with consumer preferences, which have encouraged most grocery retailers to offer more sustainable seafood options.”
Slowly but surely sustainability is getting traction.
Fermented foods have been used extensively in Asian cultures as healthy sides.
These foods provide enzymes and bacteria to support a healthy immune system and efficient digestion.

Evita Ramparte was diagnosed with a serious case of ovarian cancer, but she rejected chemo and radiation and cured her cancer through nutrition instead.
Instead, Evita opted to use an approach centered around nutrition and lifestyle — one that she says ultimately ended up curing her cancer that doctors said could not truly be cured. She visited an alternative health professional, and began a regiment of Gerson-styled juicing. Radically altering her diet from her usual processed food intake of pizza and doughnuts into freshly made juice from her own home, she also began to realize what it’s like to actually feel healthy and happy.
Evita even remembers how the juicing allowed her to remove around 16 or so stones from her gallbladder, stones that are made up of toxic materials that sit within your body and in many cases lead to gallbladder removal surgeries once the mainstream medical establishment becomes involved. Eventually, Evita’s new lifestyle led to a whole new take on life, one that she says revealed her ‘true beauty’ that she had never known. Looking physically healthier all around from healthy fat loss and rejuvenated skin health, Evita also is experiencing the mental benefits of a healthier lifestyle.
There have been numerous nutritional and holistic approaches to prevent and cure cancer for decades!
