Is it really best to eat organic or to eat local? Does the way we grow wheat or meat adversely affect our environment and, eventually, our health?
By now most of us are aware of the threats looming in the food world. It's time for answers, and Slow Food Nation steps up to the challenge. Here the charismatic leader of the Slow Food movement, Carlo Petrini, outlines many different routes by which we may take back control of our food.
The three central principles of the Slow Food plan are these:
(1) Food must be sustainably produced in ways that are sensitive to the environment
(2) Those who produce the food must be fairly treated
(3) The food must be healthful and delicious.
In his travels around the world as ambassador for Slow Food, Petrini has witnessed firsthand the many ways that native peoples are feeding themselves without making use of the harmful methods of the industrial complex. He relates the wisdom to be gleaned from local cultures in such varied places as Mongolia, Chiapas, Sri Lanka, and Puglia.
Carlo Petrini's manifesto, Slow Food Nation, makes switching from grabbing dinner from a drive-thru to seeking out environmentally friendly foods seem not just worth the effort, but necessary. If we want happiness and peace, we're going to have to change the way we eat.
