    :C but I love it, I have major food allergies and this is one of the few things I can eat.

    This was really interesting and disheartening! As a vegetarian of almost a year I've gobbled down a lot of quinoa for protein and the taste, but is there any solution to this problem? Is it really the consumer's fault for trying to eat healthfully (not to mention ethically if they're vegetarian or vegan!) or the provider's fault for jacking up the prices? Health food costs make me livid; my wish is to have my own farm somewhere where the only one laboring for my food is me. Anyway, rant over. This article made me sad and hungry.

      Me too-- and I only posted it because it really made me think! I think Hillary hit the nail on the head with buying local, and furthermore I think it just shows that our entire system globalized food market, for meat or vegetables, is seriously flawed. I'm hoping this article will start discussions about how we can change our system so that people who are vegetarians (like me!) or trying to eat healthy can do so ethically and without these huge implications.

      I feel your pain. I find that buying local and from farmers markets helps me eat healthy and ethically. Good luck navigating the supermarket!
