Divorce

Package it, slap a label on it and sell it for $4.99 a pound. It’s as simple as that when you’re selling groceries, right? Hardly. Food, meat in particular, is tied to cultural sensibilities about production, cleanliness, family values and a host of other topics.
Meat, like Norman Rockwell images of the American farm, is myth. We’ve been conditioned to turn away from the origins of our food and respond to blood and death with repulsion. Or have we?
With wealth comes the desire to learn about where our food comes from, how it’s produced and what exactly is in it. The point is that shopping for food is an increasingly complex process as has less to do with securing calories than it does with symbols and meaning.

  1. Howdy terrific website! Doees running a blog such as this take a massive
    amount work? I’ve virtually no knowledge of coding but I
    was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off subject nevertheless I just had to ask.
    Kudos!

  2. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between
    usability and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a
    superb job with this. Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Internet
    explorer. Excellent Blog!

  3. Good day! This is my first visit to your blog!
    We are a collection of volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community in the same
    niche. Your blog provided us valuable information to work on. You have done a extraordinary
