So you think you know where your food comes from? The grocery store? The warehouse? The processing plant? The lab?
We have a right and an underlying desire to know what we are eating and where it comes from. People are often distracted and assume that of course, if it is packaged as food, resembles food, and tastes like food, so it must indeed, be just that.
We are easily convinced by mass marketing, complicated labeling, and a culture of being disconnected from our own food sources, that we are eating real food. Truthfully, we are unknowingly consuming GMOs, artificial and “natural flavors“, and a wide variety of chemicals used to treat, preserve, and grow our “foods”.
The sad truth is that a lot of what we think of as food, isn’t.
Back To The Roots is a business dedicated to the Undo Food movement and connecting people back to where food comes from. I want better for my family and encourage them to make educated food choices. One of the best options we have is to grow our own food instead of relying on big corporations to put sustainable farming practices, labor ethics, or feeding hungry people ahead of profits.
Take a peek at the scorecard of the Big Ten food companies and see how they measure up!
My family and I grow some of our own food. We have a garden every spring and there isn’t anything better than pulling our own carrots, plucking vine ripened tomatoes, or shelling peas from outback. I love to make things grow and sharing that satisfaction with my kids. Living in northern New England, we do have a relatively short growing season, so I’m always yearning to grow things indoors too. The Ready To Grow kits from Back To The Roots are a perfect way to grow more of our own food and all year round. Even when there’s 3 feet of snow outside.
There are kits available for a Mushroom Farm, Garden-in-a-Can, Garden-in-a-Jar, a Self-watering Tomato Planter, and even a Water Garden 2.0!
The organic Mushroom Farm comes with everything you need (except water). Seriously, it’s a simple process to start and mushrooms need very little support to grow. It is a fungi, after all. The kids and I started this “farm” just a few days ago and we are patiently waiting to see our oyster mushrooms sprout!
If mushrooms aren’t your thing, although, honestly, I don’t know how that could be (says this maniacal mushroom lover), maybe you’ll love the homegrown Garden-in-a-Can herb kits?
Sooo ready for spring! Thanks to @backtotheroots_official we are growing a bunch of different herbs with their Ready To Grow line of Garden-in-a-Can set! The 4pk has cilantro, basil, sage, and dill and let’s you grow herbs right in your windowsill (even if there’s still over a foot of snow outside)! Just add water! #undofood #organic #growyourown #herbs #windowsillgarden #gardeninacan #greenthumb
Again, everything you need (minus the water) is included. You’ll be ready to get started as soon as you pull off the lids! It comes with 4 “cans” that are well-marked for basil, cilantro, dill, and sage. Plant the seeds, find a sunny windowsill, and get ready to watch them grow!
What is your family’s favorite vegetable?
Our favorite is broccoli, I think. It always surprises me, but my kids scoff up those little green trees, steamed or raw! And, personally, I think you haven’t really lived until you’ve had roasted broccoli: a crunchy, nutty heaven-sent dish.
I probably have to go with yams or sweet potatoes. Not one of my favorites because of it’s texture, I don’t serve it often and have probably disenfranchised my kids on the healthy benefits of this funky veggie.
Being mindful of what we eat and where it comes from makes a huge impact on ourselves and the world around us. It’s time to undo food and get better connected to the food you and your family eat.
