Slow Food Quickens the Pace

Slow Food Quickens the Pace | Sustainable Food | Scoop.it
A gastronomic movement’s founder reflects and finds reasons for optimism. "On solutions: “First is the local economy. Rather than move food from one country to another, we need to change the system of distribution and help the farmers around our houses. We have people who want to farm but cannot — why can huge companies get credit but young farmers cannot? — and we have a broken knowledge chain that we need to rebuild. We need a stronger and more productive dialogue between ‘official’ science and traditional knowledge."

Chris Masterjohn — My Experience With Vegetarianism

Chris Masterjohn — My Experience With Vegetarianism | Sustainable Food | Scoop.it
"I believe the best way to support animal welfare, environmental sustainability, and human health is to support farmers who raise their animals on pasture. This allows each animal to live life as an animal's life should be lived, makes the farm a sustainably complex ecosystem, and produces animal products of superior nutritional value. Sometimes I get mail from vegans who tell me their health is fantastic. I wish all such people joy and the best of health. For those with very different experiences, I hope telling my story helps them find their own path to recovery."
