Veggie or not, I think we can all agree that Fast Food is the devil! Laden with sugar, fat and empty calories, ordering that Big Mac and Coke just might be the biggest mistake you make all day!

60 Minutes’ Leslie Stahl recently interviewed Alice Waters — the mother of the Slow Food Movement.  

Waters is famous for her local and organic way of cooking and has become the face of sustainable eating. In the interview, Waters says:

“I feel that good food should be a right and not a privilege and it needs to be without pesticides and herbicides, and everybody deserves this food.”

We’re totally on your side, Alice! I just wish she’d ditch the meat and choose more sustainable ingredients. Check out the entire interview below.

    alice waters didn’t create slow food. she didn’t even start the slow food movement in the us…c’mon guys.

    Yes, but she is a white face and Dr. Vandana Shiva just doesn’t have that broad pale appeal.

    I must disagree on this one.

    Better check yourself on “just wish she’d ditch the meat and choose more sustainable ingredients”. The jury is still out on the claim that vegtetarianism is sustainable. Michael Pollan eloquently points out that the most sustainable food may be pastured meat…if everyone went over to organic veggies, we would need to rely on vast monocultures and expend a great deal of carbon to ship fertilizers across the country.

    I found the interview inspiational. She’s right, everyone should have access to organic, non gmo food. I’m trying growing food in my yard this year, that’s pretty sustainable.

    dear Matt, if everybody would switch to “pastured meat” (would that include the pigs and the chickens ?) it takes a hell of a lot more space then organic fields.
    i would say that organic small scale farming and a vegan lifestyle is the best and most environment friendly, wouldnt you agree ?

    and can i ask, if thats your opinion, i presume you only stick to eating “pastured meat” ?

    I have nothing against vegetables, organic farming or the Slow Food movement, but holy jeez I want to throttle llice Waters. Trying to push organic gardening as anything other than an indulgence and a luxury is naive at best and insulting at worst.

    Herwin: I’m not sure about it taking “a hell of a lot more space”. My CSA keeps Cows and Chickens in addition to veggies and feeds several hundred Coloradans..and uses much less space than the petrochem soy bean fields across the river. I do agree that small scale farming farming is the bomb, but those farms should seek to emulate the balance of nature…which includes animals and omnivores…that’s the most environmentally friendly thing I can imagine.
