In this fast-paced world eating healthy may be one of the hardest simple things to do. Coming from generations of ancestors who had to fend from their selves we are now a generation of fast food go-ers. It’s inevitable, we can’t avoid fast food this day in age. Whether it be a breakfast snack, a coffee, or a burger as consumers we just can’t stay away and the effects are life-threatening.
It’s ironic that we know we are destroying ourselves yet we continue to do so. For many years when television was first executed on a mass scale people were oblivious to advertisements. Coming from truly traditional homes where someone’s word was everything, these consumers never thought anything less than the truth from what advertisers messages were telling. Lies and falsehoods were common from advertisers. Advertisers commonly used doctors and scientists to gain credibility when expressing distorted facts, these facts quickly became what most regarded as truth.
What’s real started to become lost due to disillusion and distorted facts. Gradually these messages change our beliefs as to what’s considered appropriate according to a collective understanding.
Living according to universal truth or living according to what advertiser’s sell became the two major divisions in what’s considered real.
Those living in truth who seek facts and understanding before acting were continued to be shunned down despite factual evidence. Governments and monopolies continue to deploy strategies of false facts and false information making these people seem foolish despite possibly being correct.
False illusions and beliefs have been created everywhere due to false information.
Not everyone seeks to learn and understand what’s being put into their body although everyone should. We should be moving away from fast food and malnutrition and instead moving back to a more traditional approach; cooking at home.
Cooking at home is quickly becoming a lost art. Rather than filling our cravings with whole foods we would rather get a value burger for the sake of saving time.
Why are we in such a rush? If anything we have more time to live and enjoy ourselves than our ancestors did.
We need to stop being ignorant as to what we put into our bodies. Food should be viewed as fuel and constantly fuelling up on sugar and salty snacks really doesn’t help anyone.
Instead of sugary and salty we should be aiming towards proteins and leafy greens. We should prioritize our meats and vegetables. Fruits are great too and can be nutritious as a snack, but in terms of meals and replacing eating out think meats and veggies. If you don’t eat enough meats consider buying some protein powder as a replacement supplement – there’s also green powdered supplements to replace your leafy greens but these are more useful alongside your leafy greens rather than consuming the supplement alone. Nothing replaces whole foods not even supplements.
Supplements can be great to address the vitamins and nutrients we may be missing, but not entirely great to rely on as a daily source of nutrition. Supplements should be used wisely rather than being overused.
Really, eating at home shouldn’t be as difficult as it’s cracked up to be. Keep it simple until it becomes a consistent routine only then try to incorporate more complex recipes. First stage is being consistent. Plan favorable meals for coming days. Make sure you always have meat in the fridge and lettuce or spinach in the crisper.
Make eating out a last resort. The more you eat at home the more you’ll value home-cooked meals. You’ll feel better and be a lot happier! Your complexion and weight will thank you.
