What Are You Eating Every Day ?
Just read that over 65 percent of the food consumed in North America is processed foods.
That means around 2 out of 3 people are not eating the foods that have the nutrition our body needs.
Processed foods have been stripped of many nutrients and harmful additives have been added in to make the food taste ‘better’.
Another statistic to think about is that over 40 percent of food eaten is consumed in a vehicle.
I remember when there were very few fast food restaurants. Our grandparents often took us out to Morrison’s cafeteria back in the 1960’s. The cafeteria had a wide selection of foods including meats, fish, fruits, vegetables, bread, and dessert. You went through a serving line and built a plate as you passed through the heated trays that held the food.
In 1900, one out of ten people in our nation would get cancer. By 2000, one out of three people would be affected by cancer in their lifetime. In just a couple of more years, one out of two people will experience cancer in their lifetime.
Is there a direct correlation between what we put in our mouths and the disease epidemics that our nation now faces?
Our bodies are wonderfully made. If you want to move towards a healthier diet and lifestyle, just stop eating processed foods and fast foods that lack nutrition. If you are eating food that has a nutrition label, you may want to rethink whether or not to keep eating those kinds of foods that are labeled. Have you ever seen a nutrition label on an apple or a carrot?
Fruits and Vegetables have many nutrients that promote vitality and good health. Nutrition professionals are still researching phytonutrients and what these natural chemicals that are found in fruits and vegetables do for the human body. If you eat foods that are loaded with greens, you are getting the life blood of the plants which is known as Chlorophyll. Our body uses all of these nutrients to heal and repair cells.
