Is Starbucks organic?

It's coffee. Yea they add milk and a whole host of other goodness to it. But at the core, coffee isn't jacked up like everything else we consume is it? I am struggling here. The Food Inc. man made me lose sleep over this and yet he gave me very few suggestions of what to actually eat. Truly, I have found that I don't actually WANT to eat a lot of the crap I typically would have eaten a week or so ago. I haven't had soda. I have only been eating meals with food purchased at the farmers market. Nothing has come from a box. I was doing really well....that is until today. I went to Starbucks and was fine with that. I have a masters student observing me and she brought me subway (with chips) as a treat and I felt REALLY bad not eating with her because it was such a nice gesture. So I did. Then I went to this work baby shower and ate like crazy. Get togethers are my weakness when it comes to food. Eating is SO social for me. What is more social than a shower celebrating a woman who is at the only time in her life when people expect her to eat whatever she wants?

I am not saying that any of this has damaged me for life or is really that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things. Seth tells me I need to approach this all organic lifestyle slowly or I will get burnt out quickly. Another flaw in my general make up is how things just stick with me.

SIDE NOTE - I'm not sure if I blogged about my movie fiasco on the way to Vegas, but I bought the movie Precious on the airplane on the flight out. About halfway through the "system" shut down. So I never saw the rest of the movie. This movie has damaged me. I mean seriously and for real. It has messed me up. I can't get the story out of my head and I don't even know the ending.

That is almost how badly Food Inc. is sticking with me. BUT, I guess they wouldn't make documentaries if they didn't want you to get fired up about something and hold onto the message they are trying to convey.

I know what you're thinking. LIGHTEN UP. Yea well, that's why they call them flaws right? If it was easy to get rid of them everyone would be perfect and that would just be lame.
