It’s been a while, but it’s time for a rant.
We need to reject the horrible anti-nutritious food that we are being bombarded and inundated with. The vast majority of the food available to us in the grocery stores are filled with either sugar, grains, soy, dairy, or chemicals. The only foods that I can trust are meats and vegetables, but again, only as long as they are unprocessed in any way. Some foods that you would NEVER expect to have harmful or questionable additives do. Try to find tuna fish that is just tuna fish in a can. Bacon? Good luck finding any without sugar and nitrates.
There is nearly nothing good for you in the frozen section except for frozen vegetables and maybe some fruits, but even a lot of the frozen fruits have sugar added to them. It’s maddening trying to find anything good to eat in a GROCERY STORE.
What’s worse is how much of this horrible stuff is marked as “Heart Healthy,” “Healthy,” or “Organic” all while being filled with sugar, grains, soy, and dairy. The low-fat, no-nut, gluten-free labels are all over the place, as if those were really any better for you. Rice is still a grain. I can understand people with Celiac disease avoiding gluten, but everyone else? It’s the GRAINS you need to avoid!!!
Nuts? If you have a nut allergy, sure, avoid them. Everyone else? It’s one of the best foods for you to eat!
I feel like Mugatu in Zoolander: “Am I the only person here not taking crazy pills?”
Is it a conspiracy? Maybe. It is the food industry that has paid for our nutrition research over the past 50 years, and they’re the ones who came up with this whole nonsense of low-fat, not eating eggs, gluten-free, etc that is nothing but BS and causes more harm than good. Now, drug companies are buying food companies that sell high-carb foods. The high-carb foods cause health problems which the drug companies medicate for. Is that not a conspiracy?
Eat meat and veggies and fruits, people. You will get healthier just through eating right. Avoid the middle of the grocery store; shop the perimeter. Your body will thank you.
