Food Co-Operatives

This past weekend our family drove to Durham to pick up a top loader washing machine.....I need one for washing cloth diapers, but that's another blog. On our way home we decided to stop by Chapel Hill/Carborro and visit Auntie Erin at her place of employment. Erin works at the Weaver Street Market which is a community owned grocery store and cafe. It was my first visit to a food co-op and I absolutely loved it! It was crazy busy on one of our first warm Sunday's in North Carolina, but even the bustle of activity didn't detract from it's loveliness. I really, really wish that we had one here in Raleigh. I have no idea if our community would support one.....probably not since we don't currently have any food co-ops, but I would shop at one for sure!

In the past week I have watched Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and the movie Food Inc. and I have LOT'S to say about food, government and how those two things affect my family and yours. I'm going to wait a little while before I post my thoughts on these subjects, because right now it would come out as angry, unintelligible rantings. I think it's good to be fired up about things that matter in life.....that's when change takes place, but it's useless to be so fired up you sound like a fool. Check back later for our very own Schultz family food revolution! :o) We don't actually have so far do you?

Yummy, yummy salads!

Oh, my family has a loooooooooooooong way to go for sure, but I definitely want a healthier life for us, to move away from processed foods as much as possible.....we'll do our best! I'm excited to hear what you have to say on the matter! ;)
