Everything is fast these days. Fast lifestyle. Fast food. It begs me to wonder, "What ever happened to the home?" Was women's equality a good thing? Oh, yes, I'm a woman. I get that it was in it's way...but our food and our lifestyles have suffered because there's less and less women who grow up knowing how to cook, how to can, and how to bake. That's truly a travesty because it's affected how families stay healthy.
We eat fast food or we cook with microwaves. We eat standing up, we eat in the car, we eat on the street absorbing the air into our food. We eat wherever and whenever it's convenient and we don't stop to think about what that means to the body and the mind.
I don't believe in fad diets, either. Fad diets are fast. What I have in mind is a healthy, organic lifestyle. A lifestyle that I ascertain would behoove anyone who undertook it. My diet is clean and healthy and part of the reason for that is my philosophy that nothing about food should be fast. I think that makes a difference in my body, but I know that it definitely has an effect on my mind.
Everything is so very clear when your diet is clean. Pesticides affect brain cells. If it didn't why would GMOs cause Parkinson's and Autism? They cause those brain disorders because everything in your body is affected by pesticides, microwaves, coffee, alcohol, soda...the list is endless.
When I look around and I see people standing at food trucks, I see people reach for soda like it's water, I see people lining up to get their medications at Walgreen's...I see all of that and all I can feel is disgust and pity for all the poor people who don't know any better or who just don't get it. Why don't they get it? Because the food and the way they eat are poisoning their brain cells.
So much disease is happening at our hands. The American people hold their hand up and beg for more food because the food is laden with pesticides and preservatives that are pure poison and more addictive than sugar or heroin. Yeah, I said more addictive than heroin! (You have to go see this article about how oreo cookies are more addictive than heroin. It's worse than anything I can ever say.)
Not only are people addicted to fast food, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals, but their brain is telling them it's okay. And it's not okay. It's not okay that we don't know what good food is like. The American people did before corporations started monopolizing two of three things (the things being food, water and our spirit) that give our body sustenance.
I say that I won't let them do that to my body. I say it's time to go back to the old fashioned ways of doing things. We all need to learn how to bake and cook for our families using organic ingredients. If you won't do it for yourself, then do it for your children. They are going to carry on your legacy. My children will carry on the legacy that "An Old-Fashioned Notion of Cooking" is best for your body.
