Mentor Group: 2011-2012
Hi mentor-groupsters! I've created a page here regarding some of the things we have been talking about in Mentor Group for 2011-12. We have been discussing food issues and some of the health, cultural, political, and economic aspects of industrialized food systems.
Movie Trailer for the first film we viewed - "Food, Inc."
Second film we are watching: "Super Size Me"
Applications for Healthy Living:
Here are some tips based on what we have been discussing for healthier eating and living.
- "Vote" with the scanner at the grocery store: If we buy healthier products, more will become available and the norm.
- Shop the "outside" (around the edges) of the grocery store. The items in the middle of the grocery store are typically more processed. Fresh fruits, vegetables, etc. are on the outer aisles or sides of the store's sales floor.
