No Time to Cook or Don't Know What to Cook?
Do you grab frozen food, fast food, boxed or canned food to feed your family because you are too exhausted when you get home from work to make a home-cooked meal? Deep down do you feel guilty about it?
You have read what is in the food you eat; you’ve seen it on TV. When you go to the grocery store, do you notice that food that is not the healthiest is the most convenient and often times the cheapest to buy? But you buy it anyway? Do you desperately want to change and don’t know where to start? Guilt can be so deep-rooted that you can make yourself sick so please let me help you.
I know what you are thinking. You have a life, and on the weekends you want to spend time with your family and relax, not cook. In today’s world, that excuse may not be good enough.
Huge strides are being made in technology all the time. What about agriculture and how our food is grown? If you knew what was actually in the food you are serving you would immediately cook from scratch. Instead of fighting against using carcinogenic chemicals on our food and finding a way to provide clean food, companies (including the government) are bullying their way to grow more by using Roundup, GMO (genetically modified organisms) and more. I’m afraid to say it, but it’s all about money.
Are you wondering how you can avoid GMOs? Buy organic when you can, especially anything with corn or soy (organic foods are not allowed to contain GMOs). Wal-Mart is making it easier (and cheaper) to buy organic and if it is beyond your reach, I will give you the magic potion you can wash your product in that will dissolve that crap it is covered with.
Having real whole foods and feeding your kids real food is invaluable and more important than anything else you purchase. What I just said sounds so ridiculous; “Feed your family real food.” But it is true in today’s world. This new way of eating is going to save your life. It will not happen overnight and we will take it one step at a time.
The #1 producer of GMOs is a corporation called Monsanto and it makes RoundUp; a weed killer and known carcinogenic. The CEO and upper staff refuse to eat the food sprayed by their own products. They eat only organic, non-GMO foods, and that should tell you something (a huge red flag is waving profusely here). Food is so important and perhaps the most important thing you purchase for yourself and your family.
America has forgotten that for a while, but we are slowly coming back to that realization. Organic food is so much more important than having the newest Mercedes, iPhone or taking a vacation, etc. Food can equal health, or food can equal sickness, depending on your choices. I could go on and on, but you get the picture. You are smart, and it is totally up to you.
My question to you, “Are you worth it? Is your family worth it?” Of course!
