We are what we eat

You certainly have heard it once in life, we are what we eat!
There are many toxins out there, and our food is indeed one of the principal things we have to take in consideration when it comes to these toxins.

We need to choose wisely the products we want to bring in our kitchens. As well when we go out for dinner, we must go to some good restaurants.
Food is an essential part of our everyday life. It is part of our social life, and celebrations. It brings people together during holidays, and it’s for sure part of many cultural traditions around the world. When we celebrate something, we are reunited around tables with friends and family to share good time and laughs. How great is that?

What we put into our body is our fuel

For this reason, we want to have the best fuel to keep our system working well through the years.
People agree with me when we talk about this, BUT they are telling me all the time: “We surely have to eat good food, but it’s costly buying organic products and all the top foods out there.” And I always respond with this question to them: Why are salads more expensive than hamburgers?

Researching explanation on this topic, it makes you land on so many interesting websites, and what you find is only a connection between business and money! What a surprise!

“The legislation that governs all the subsidies is the controversial farm bill. The bill provides billions of dollars in subsidies, much of which goes to huge agribusinesses producing feed crops, such as corn and soy, which are then fed to animals,” PCRM writes. “By funding these crops, the government supports the production of meat and dairy products–the same products that contribute to our growing rates of obesity and chronic disease. Fruit and vegetable farmers, on the other hand, receive less than 1 percent of government subsidies.”
What would our society look like if fruit and vegetable products received more of the cut?” (source_ https://www.alternet.org/story/146013/why_salads_are_more_expensive_than_hamburgers )

I suggest you watch the Oscar-nominated film Food Inc. It explains why a lower-income family grapples with the issue of spending what little money they have on fast food burgers because it is cheaper and more filling than buying fresh vegetables but knowing that they’ll end up likely spending even more down the line in health costs. That’s a decision that no family should have to make. (source_ https://www.alternet.org/story/146013/why_salads_are_more_expensive_than_hamburgers )

So isn’t this disappointing you? The system we are living on knocks us down. It tricks you to buy the less expensive and “delicious” burgers, which mostly will become an addiction to your brain, instead of offering you the healthy choices. They want you sick! They want you on medications for the rest of your life. In this case, they will keep up the pharmaceutical and health insurances incomes which are one of the largest businesses in the world.
Have you ever wonder why for instance Mc. Donald is everyfuc*** where even around the most impoverished country in this world?? Excuse my language, but it drives me nuts!

I saw this hilarious statement online: Please don’t write another article on obesity in America until you explain why salads are $ 7 and a burger is $ 1. Funny but not much right?

The modern systems have profoundly changed everything

The way we take the nutritive substances from the foods we eat is completely different from what it used to be.
All we can find at the supermarket are products full of chemical elements that will make us sick eventually.
That’s why is even more important to buy fresh goodies. We have to avoid most of the canned foods which are full of preservatives and toxins as well.

We must be aware of all the fast foods out there, don’t ever go for the cheap ones. The fact that they are cheap it means something huge. They are made of dangerous substances, and most of the time it is not even real food!

Stay tuned for more next week I will talk about prepared food and why to avoid them.

In Good Health!
