every bite we eat -

I think we are becoming more aware of the cost of our food. I note where something comes from before I buy it. Do I really need fruit from Chile or New Zealand?

Alan reminds me that Michael Pollan is speaking at Bioneers this year. His talk and demonstration are a reminder to consider in oil the cost of our food.

Remember that: "We have shifted from a food economy that yielded two calories of food for every one calorie of fossil fuel we burned to grow, harvest, process and distribute the food, to a food economy that yields one calorie of food for every ten calories of fossil fuel we put into obtaining it."
