Ending the food tribes!

In “Let’s put an end to ‘dietary tribalism’ “, Andy Bellatti, MS, RD, calls for us to bury the hatchet of the words that seperate us. Often times,  lifestyles terms such as  vegan, vegetariam, or locavore divide us. Instead, we should seek opportunities  to come together to address issues in the food supply chain.  He asks what would happen if we would put down the kinves we hold at each other and work together on:

…getting food dyes and trans fat out of our food supply, demanding that the presence of genetically modified organisms and artificial hormones (at the very least) be labeled, ridding schools of nutritionally empty foods, and bringing more access to healthy foods in “food deserts.”

What would happen, indeed!


Maybe this is a call to revisit your Food Philosophy!
