Are We Eating Real Food?

Most of us are obsessed with food that tastes good, but don’t realize it’s often not suited for human consumption!

The reason we choose these processed foods is for convenience, however, there is an ENORMOUS price that we pay for that in terms of our health. We are under the assumption that healthy food does not taste good, but that’s far from the truth.

During recent years our diet has devolved to be primarily made up of “ultra-processed foods” that offer little nutritional value and are linked to our most serious health issues. In fact, 57.9% of what Americans now eat is considered ultra-processed, according to a study published in the BMJ Open medical journal!

By ultra-processed, it generally refers to foods composed of additives, colors, flavors, sweeteners, emulsifiers, that emulate the qualities of real unprocessed ingredients, in order to improve qualities of the final product and/or hide undesirable qualities. In other words, it is food that is intentionally manipulated to make consumers favor it more.

This side effects are much poorer health, as exhibited by the deteriorating health of our nations.

What We Eat Is No Longer Natural Food!

On a day-to-day basis, we don’t even think about what we are eating. This is illustrated by a sobering question… Did you know that America’s unprocessed vegetable consumption is less then 1%! Yes, you read that right!

We are no longer aware of what we put in our bodies at each meal and most of it is not real food!

Our bodies were not designed to deal with “food” that isn’t real food. We evolved without anything processed in our diets, and suddenly our generation is bombarded with it. These sudden dietary changes have resulted in numerous serious health conditions all being linked to the fake food we are consuming.

The sad truth is most of us are brainwashed by society and commercial interests to continuing eating the way we do. It’s convenient and everyone is doing it. We continue eating convenience foods, fast foods, frozen meals, boxes foods, restaurant meals; none of which are natural.

What’s The Solution?

Luckily, the solution is simple. The key to solving this is getting back to what our ancestors did. Eating real foods, made from whole food ingredients, made at home from scratch (raw natural ingredients).

You may be thinking, it’s too hard, or times have changed. And if you are, then you’re on the same unfortunate path as most of us.
