Is that real food?
Saturday, March 31, 2012
The other day, my daughter asked me to pick up pizza from Domino's for her and her family while I was in town. So, I decided to pick up a pizza from my husband and me also. To make as long boring story short, about a half hour after I am finished eating, my daughter calls and asks me if I enjoyed eating "Asian hair". It turns out she was curious as to what she was eating and discovered one of the ingredients in the crust originated from hair. My son-in-law tried to make it seem not so bad and tell me that maybe they used horse hair instead of human hair.
Needless, to say, I was totally grossed out. I am not sure what happened to the leftover pizza, but I know that I did not eat it.
I was going through my emails the other day and came upon a link to Mike Adams' page and I started following links so I am not sure where this quote comes from exactly but it stated,
"People will eat anything that is marketed to them as food."
That is so true; just look at the items on 2/3 of the shelves in the grocery store. The majority of the "stuff" that they call food is not really food, but a food-like substance.
So, my goal for April is to eat food, real food. I am going to read labels on everything packaged that I buy and if I figure a thrid grader cannot read the list of ingredients, then it will be put back on the shelf. That and the 5-ingredient rule.
I think following those two rules will help me focus on eat real food.
