(I wrote this last night but Ecto was NOT cooperating!!)
WOW, just got back from Food, Inc. Intense, intense, intense!! More on that in a sec 😉
This afternoon I was a snack monster and had some Trader Joe’s trail mix + cherries while plugging away online—
I love love the dried cherries in this trail mix. Oh wait, and I love the chocolate chips…and the peanut butter chips…and….everything 😉
Dinner was quick and simple pre-movie:
Annie’s + broccoli with veggies and hummus! I love this mac & cheese…and you know my secret? (shhhhh) I drop a little butter in the final product…..makes all the difference in the world.
And then I raced to the movie to get first dibs on seats since it was first come first serve and…free!! Actually, Anne drove me. Ryan raced back from work to meet the girls there but I felt sort of bad for him because it turned out to be more of a girls night than anything….there was wine! (Anne was a bad influence and “forced” me to order a large wine instead of a small…pshhh)
I think all movie theaters should offer wine, don’t you?! I love the cute little concession stand at the historic Tampa Theater!
Now to the movie. I really liked it!! I mean, it was incredibly intense but so educational and eye opening. I think all Americans should see this movie just so they can really understand where their food comes from.
I’m not going to get into the whole vegetarian debate right now because if you have been following this blog you know I have been on both sides of the equation and I do see the pros and cons of both sides. However, I think this movie is a GREAT educational tool so that people can decide for themselves what they put into their body. Totally loved the appearance of Gary from Stonyfield
woot woot! A few times, Anne and I looked at each other in total horror……crazy, crazy stuff. I highly recommend reading Fast Food Nation
while you are at it!
Right when we left the theater we were bombarded with different flyers. Anne loved it, obvi
Among the flyers was a coupon for a free taco from….Chipotle! Chipotle sponsored the free screening of Food, Inc. Doesn’t McDonald’s OWN Chipotle?!! Haha
Oh! And I forgot my movie snack!! I ate half of this dark chocolate coconut bar while watching chickens get hung. I don’t know how I had an appetite but I did…my appetite conquers all.
Also, at the theater I was RECOGNIZED!
For the blog, of course. 😉 It was so funny and awesome at the same time! I was in the car with Anne and she was giving me a hard time about twittering
and then lo and behold—Monica, a reader, races up to me and said she saw I would be at the movie on twitter! I LOVE to meet you guys…it totally makes my night!
Pajama time. Asap.
