Here is a great article which touches on a topic I feel SO STRONGLY about!
Junking Junk Food:
On Black Friday, one of the most commercial days of the year, I'm feeling very anti-establishment. I've discovered that folks in Vancouver, BC started dubbing this as Buy Nothing Day! Love it! Great motto: Buy Nothing --- Value Everything!
So: along these lines regarding the choices we make when it comes to food, we are swimming against a tidal wave of advertising dollars which promote unhealthy food choices. And it's working, It's effective. Look at our similar tidal wave of skyrocketing obesity rates!
Here's an earlier rant of mine:
Fighting Corporate Control of Our Bodies!
On this most commercial of days I would just encourage everyone to think twice not only of course about food choices, but about all expenditure choices. Do we REALLY NEED that (fill in the blank) ...? Are there more meaningful ways we could be spending our time and money...? Do we really want to show corporations that their advertising dollars are going to pay off and influence our choices?
My wallet is staying in my pocket today and I'm spending my time with my family.
How about you?
Have a SPARKIN' Day everyone!
