Have you heard of the slow food movement?  Do you know what slow food is?  If you think it’s the opposite of ‘fast food’, you’re right!

According to slowfood.com, slow food is a global, grassroots organization, founded in 1989 to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions, counteract the rise of fast life and combat people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the world around us. 

Food should be enjoyed.  Celebrated, even.  Who doesn’t love the feeling you get after a delicious home-cooked meal?  Our bodies need nutrients found in food for good health, which you won’t get from a fast-food restaurant or microwave dinner.  It’s unfortunate that our busy lifestyles have made it challenging to prepare and cook our own food, but it is essential that we do what we can to eat home cooked meals as often as possible.  We also need to teach our children the ever-so-important life skill of cooking. 

Not only is slow food about cooking and preparing meals at home, but it promotes locally produced foods.  Now is the perfect time to visit your local farmer’s market and support the slow food movement.  Food that is found locally will not only support your community, but the foods are fresher than foods that are mass produced, meaning they have more nutrients.  (And they taste better!)
