What is 'slow food'? - Wellsphere- Personal Medicine House Call Network

We have all heard about fast food, of course.  So, what IS the slow food movement?  According to the  Slow Food  website, "Slow Food is a non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people's dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes, and how our food choices affect the rest of the world...".  

Available to all, in many cities across the U.S., you can catch them in small venues such as parks having fresh pie-baking contests made of only local ingredients (from scratch, of course) or at international conferences in Italy or France -- a wonderful, life-loving crowd wanting to spread the news that you really can eat fresh and wholesome!

Great resource for health content here at Wellsphere. I liken slow food to small farming communities in which the farmers travel only a short distance to sell food, and thus it stays on the vine longer.
