PB + J Monday

Happy Monday!

That weekend went by waaaaay too fast!  But here we are again starting a whole new week.  I wonder what it has in store for us.

Here to start us off, for my PB+J Monday this week, I want to share this video.

It's a Canadian video but it really applies to everyone.  The message is basically to eat local or at least food that is grown and produced in your own country.  I know this isn't a new message but sometimes it needs to be said and heard again.  The video is about 3 min long and it has been put together really well.  Please take a moment to watch it.

This is the link here:


I do most of the grocery shopping for our family and when I'm at the grocery store I do my best to read the signs and choose food that is from Ontario or Canada.  It's not always easy.  For example, our local grocery store sells small portions of carrots from the USA and only large bags of carrots from Canada.  I will usually buy the larger bag but it would be nice to have the option.

I grew up in a farming community and the main industry around us was potatoes.  It drives me crazy to go into the grocery store and not see bags of potatoes with CANADA written on them.  And apples too!  We have an abundance of apple orchards around us and yet we import our apples from USA and as far away as New Zealand.  I just makes me shake my head.  I think most consumers don't look at where their food is coming from and if they do I don't think they realize the impact buying imported food has on all of us and the impact it will have on our kids down the road.

I'd love to hear your views about the video and eating locally or maybe even from as close as your backyard.


Have a great Monday everyone!


  1. I completely agree with this video! I can't wait for my local farmers markets to open!

    1. Me too! It's too bad they can't be open all year round here! : )
