Fast Food Nation

I just finished watching Fast Food Nation. I read the book when it came out, so didn't feel so compelled to rush out and see the movie. (Phillip Greenlief reminded me about it on his blog.) I am really glad that I finally watched it. It reinforced my belief that one of the best things that you can do for the environment, your community, and for yourself is to go vegetarian. I also believe that a vegetarian diet becomes an overt political action. More on that later.

Fast Food Nation was a really interesting book and fun to read. I haven't had a chance to see the movie yet.

just watched Fast Food Nation, it's an impactful flick to say the least... earlier today i passed up a sausage mcmuffin because of it. Evidently it is worth passing up fast food for more than health reasons.
