Monday’s Food for Thought: What If It Weren’t Called Pink Slime?

If you read this blog, you know that MC and I are passionate about feeding our families real food, especially now that we both have children.

I saw this article in the New York Times yesterday, and given the media backlash against the ‘pink slime,’ I thought it was interesting that the author of the article referred to the whole episode as ‘unfair’.  It may be unfair that a seemingly respectable company with an exemplary safety record will have to reduce its workforce, but it is not in the least bit unfair to know what we the consumer, are purchasing.

I will stop before this post becomes a rant, but we DO need to know what’s going into our food, and what we’re feeding our families. And, it’s up to us to fight against the food industry to make sure things are labeled properly, so we can make wise choices.
