Hold the BeefPosted: November 2, 2009
Good Morning! Happy Monday!
News report: There is a beef recall in Maryland due to tainted ground beef from NY sold to Trader Joe’s and Giant. E. coli has been reported.
Yep! For those of you that saw Food Inc, now creepy is it that what Pollan spoke of is actually happening. Your average pound of ground beef is from 5 different countries. Just because the beef was processed doesn’t mean the cows were in upstate.
The thing that bothered me the most was how casually the news reporters updated us. I guess someone has to die from E. Coli for it to matter to them. This is a serious problem!
All the more reason to watch the beef intake, but remember it isn’t just beef.
On a lighter note, it is lighter out this morning! I also had a nice bowl of oat bran for breakie.
1/4 cup oat bran, 2 tbs Kashi 7 grain nuggest, 1/2 naner, 1/4 cup skim, 1/4 cup h2o, flax, handful Nature’s Path Blueberry Cinnamon Optimum, river of almond butter :) With a cup of coffee, warms me heart and soul, but in a not so attractive bowl.
Check your beef!
