Knowing the difference is realizing that, even though once in a while you attend the fast food shit holes that serve you food (at least it was food at some point), that better food does exist. “Mr. Ronald’s”, “Burger Queen” and “Cindy’s” are not major food groups and that somewhere down the line things got mixed up. Food became about money and grotesque indulgences. Food lost the respect it once had. The respect it deserves and worked thousands of years to obtain. It’s amazing how, as fast as society learned to mass produce it, and as quick as we learned the wonderful things that could be done with food, nature’s fantastic gifts, that we, as a whole, dug a hole, and perverted the very food that gives us life every day.
It’s the sickening things being done to the beautiful, yet tasty creatures that we have evolved to eat. The colouring book procedures and playing god with fruits and vegetables that were already appealing, the way nature intended. The extravagant over use of SUGAR, the globes number one most addictive drug (and I call it this because it is a substance handled by the food and drug administration). We are all guilty of turning a blind eye to the pre-cooked, pre-packaged, preservative pumped chemical waste boxes we feed ourselves from the trough of big brother’s freezer.
There was a time when organic food was simply called food. A time when chickens had one head and was soaked in mushroom sauce not ammonia. There was a time when food was not so mass produced that we have 3 to 4 times more food than we even need to feed ourselves. Yet every day we ignorantly shut our eyes to a problem that is smack dab right in front of our faces. How do you know the difference?
Eat FOOD. Consume real non processed food, eat less meat, more veggies. Pay attention to what’s going into your mouth. Feed yourself, don’t fill yourself. Easy does not mean better. It definitely does not mean healthier. Plant a garden and show your children where food comes from. Eat local, eat fresh, eat real, and eat smart
