What, what you say? You don't eat fast food? Have you ever opened a package of food, heated it up and eaten it. Have you ever opened a can of food, heated it up and eaten it? Have you ever opened a box of food, stuck your hand in it, and eaten the food inside? These foods are what I consider instant foods. Here is a portion of a blog post I wrote over 5 years ago titled "Instant Food".
FEBRUARY 15, 2007
So I just wanted to reiterate that what's important is establishing the habit of feeding yourself, which includes planning! Back in the day, and I mean back in the day, before refrigeration, before grocery stores do you think you didn't have to plan where the hell your food is coming from? Forget what your actual diet was...but let me see, your actual diet was anything you could find to eat!
You and your family had these options. Growing and/or harvesting plants, and that's a seasonal job. Raising animals, and then yep, killing them. Inventing ways of preparing food for long term storage, like curing and pickling. All of this took thought and planning or you would die, or at least go hungry.
And that's exactly what is happening now. Without thought and planning people have come to rely on someone else to feed them, and it's killing us. Someone else whose bottom line is $$, not your health. But don't blame them if you yourself don't even care! Take responsibility, it's on you!
Fast food? Cross it off the list.
