I agree, the supermarkets have so many hight calorie items, to drag us in to the bad eating and drinking habits; way to much junk food and to make it even worse they have display at the checkouts. I have revereted to ordering my food, except meat and diet iced tea from an organice store that delivers my milk, veggies, soup base's, bread etc.
One of my biggest motivators is fighting the "corporate ownership of my body" to borrow a friend's phrase. There are zillions of CEO's out there looking to turn over a dime at my expense. The mass-marketing of insanely unhealthy foods truly incenses me! Let's profit off of all these doofus consumers and THEN let's profit off of their MEDICAL TREATMENT! We've got a pill to take care of you! (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes management, etc) Ooops, side effects from that pill...? Here's another pill to take care of that! Ooops...surgery time? Step right this way...!
All the while profiting off of the uninformed public!
I have a burning desire not to give these corporations any more money that necessary and that starts and ends with what I put in my mouth. I rankle when at the supermarket I see shelves stretching off into the distance with a multitude of beverages in every color under the sun when ALL WE REALLY NEED IS WATER! And the corporate world has already begun to capture major profits off of WATER! Get ready for air, people...clean air? Here you go, that'll be five dollars for five puffs!
End rant...! :-)
