Changing habits

I have this dream that one day I’ll announce on the blog that today’s the day: I am going to make over my diet, eat more fruit and vegetables – or in my case, eat fruit and more vegetables – less meat, grocery shop locally and track all these exciting developments here on cheesecloth. But I don’t like to lie in public, so that’s probably not going to happen any time soon.

The problem is I do believe I should eat more healthily. And I do believe the food system is pretty screwed up. So last weekend I made a baby step towards change: no more supermarket chicken.

It started with a segment on Channel 4 about cheap chicken – apparently there’s one chicken wholesaler in Britain that sells chicken breasts that are 40% water. Now, I also don’t drink enough water, but surely there’s a better way to hydrate than through chicken meat!

Jesse’s also powering through Michael Pollan, so this is also a preemptive move: change the household policy before he tries to make vegetarians of us.

Stay tuned!
