Eat Well

I really love the World Wide Web sometimes. Just when I start to think, what am I going to write about, I find a great link.

This time that link is Eat Well Guide.

about them…

The Eat Well Guide is a free online directory of thousands of family farms, restaurants, markets and other outlets that offer local, fresh and sustainable food in the United States and Canada.Visitors simply enter a zip or postal code to search for food that is free of antibiotics and added hormones, and produced by healthy and humane methods that include organic, pasture-raised and heritage.The Eat Well Guide does the research for people who want to find good food and support local, sustainable farmers.

I did a search tonight and it seems pretty right on. I’ll let you know if anything changes.

Let’s eat.

Today’s confined cattle live in their own excrement, which is the carrier of the deadly E. coli strain O157:H7. Caked-on manure will migrate to edible portions during dehiding, thanks to line speeds of 390 animals per hour and laborers who are not always properly skilled. Ground beef today is made up of mixtures of hundreds or even thousands of animals. The grinding process brings surface pathogens to patty interiors that may, down the line, not be cooked adequately. A university study found that O157:H7 may also be harbored in the interior of a solid piece of meat.
