    Default food movie - Fresh

    Yeah, we've all seen a jillion food docu's, but this one struck a
    chord, namely, what are we doing about it? This is a pretty
    conscientious group, foodwise, so why are we not talking about food
    sources more often?

    BTW Shel, Walmart produce is crap!! Their produce is dried-out pithy
    flavorless garbage, no matter the price. I can't tell you how many
    times I've bought citrus that has less juice in a whole bag than my
    other local mkt has in a single fruit. I could weave baskets with
    their grn onions! No more.

    Fresh is a 2004 movie that stresses alternative/positive food sources
    and our responsiblity to support them. Sure, some of us grow a couple
    plants (my kaffir lime tree is bearing fruit! w00t!!) and many of us
    shop at farmers markets and have our own gardens, but do we really
    make it a point to eschew the corporate food production industry?

    BTW, I was pretty much done with chickens, but the scene in this movie
    showing chicken factory workers tossing out baby chicks like they were
    so much garbage clinched it. OTOH, neither were the pork factory
    scenes encouraging. I'm going to my only REAL meat mrkt and see what
    they have as an alternative in this beef centric part of CO. Do they
    have and/or can I afford grass fed beef? We'll see.

    Anyway, this is a good food documentary. We rfc'ers, FTMP, tend to
    talk the talk. Do we walk the walk?

    Anyone who can't tell produce is sub par just by looking, smelling,
    and feeling is severely retarded... I've seen poor quality produce at
    every store but I'm not forced to buy it. I buy Walmart produce and
    find it's better than most, and costs less too... having roasted red
    potatoes tonight, a 5# bag of Green Giant brand from Walmart, I see
    nothing wrong with them. I bought a 5# bag of navel oranges from
    Walmart, they are so good I should have bought two bags. I bought
    lots of salad stuff, all perfect. The only produce I looked at that I
    didn't buy were asparagus, I don't like those pencil thin ones, but
    then two other stupidmarkets had the same skinny asparaguys too... I
    attribute that to the crazy spring weather here. If you can't tell
    produce is lousy before you buy it there's something sick in your
    brain. I've never found any national brand packaged product at
    Walmart that's any different than from other stores, other than
    Walmart charges a lower price. Wherever possible I buy the Walmart
    brand, I've found it equal to or better than the name brand.
    If you think Hersheys lowers their standards for chocolate bars sold
    at Walmart then you were dropped on your skull right from your momma's
    chute... look in the mirror, notbob, see that flat sloping forehead,
    that's from where you slammed into the hard floor.

    I haven't bought Walmart produce often, mainly because there is no Super
    Walmart near me. But I have bought it while on vacation and what I bought
    was fine.

    When I Googled for it, I found Rock Fresh "an electrifying
    documentary on the world of the graffiti artist"; Market Fresh "fresh
    young girls get picked right off the stands and delivered to you", but
    I didn't find what he's talking about.

    If "Market Fresh" had been around when I was 14, my money wouldn't
    have gone to pot, and my life might've taken a very different
    trajectory.

    Because you're too busy talking about gardening?
