Pulling out my old Wartime meal planning cards to do some kitchen prep this week with extra root crops and low-point meat cuts this week. These cards were issued by the United States Department of Agriculture, National Nutrition, and Food Conservation Programs of 1939. I’m most inspired at the fact that our government met people where they were with what they had and encouraged them to do good with it. I certainly feel a resurgence in that direction. It’s time that we take our health back. Yes, we have other countries to consider from a viewpoint of war, but let’s consider the war on our health that must be fought against the companies who have made an excessive living on encouraging our unhealthy habits of overconsumption of the foods that cause obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. This is the place where local farmers find their unique role in changing the food system. I truly believe that.
