From my vantage point, it seems as if everyone is shifting to eating whole foods, in season and produced locally.  The movement is afoot and it involves a return to refrigerator ingredients that our grandparents would recognize.

Yet the food industry of the last 50 years isn’t going to leave quietly.  Take a look at this PR piece from the people who bring us high fructose corn syrup.  Or as I like to call it, Public Enemy #1.  According to the Centers for Disease Control in April of this year, 66% of Americans over the age of 20 are overweight or obese. As Obama would say, “We can do better than that.”  I, too, was raised on mysterious red liquid in gallon jugs, but it’s time to reshape our ways.
