Changing your Food Ethics
In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurants I'm going to talk about our food ethics. Over a period of time food companies have marketed a value system to all of us that “you should get as much as food possible for your money”. And now the culture of faster, better bigger meals has become a part of our everyday life. With few dollars you can buy a big Mac and a soda full of sugar, salt and high fructose corn syrup with little or zero nutritional value. After eating the big Mac you will be as hungry as everyone else with a difference that you just became more overweight.
We are simply consuming too much processed and dead foods that do not have enough nutrients our bodies need throughout the day. The idea of calories in and calories out for maintaining a healthy weight doesn’t work anymore, because not ALL CALORIES are equal. Calories from genetically modified soy beans or high fructose corn syrup are different than calories from pastries or even white sugar. You cannot burn calories from processed or genetically modified foods just by exercising.
The truth is that high fructose corn syrup is toxic, contains mercury and over a period of time it damages the body cells so our bodies cannot filter and fully digest corn syrup anymore. Before consuming foods that have high fructose corn syrup you need to be aware of health dangers that come with it such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, coronary disease, high blood pressure and many more. Investing in good nutritional food is important and sometimes people think that why they should increase their expenses and invest on organic or fresh products when they can save money and time on processed foods. But they simply aren’t aware that a heart attack 30 years from now will cost them a lot more when they cannot work.
As a society we need to change our attitudes that we need to get more for less money. In our Seattle Organic Restaurants community we believe that every individual has the right to consume what they want, but we shouldn’t be promoting junk foods, processed foods or sugary drinks. Science proves that consuming processed foods are making us sick so we can avoid diabetes, heart problems, cancer, hypertension, dementia and many other health issues we by staying active, avoiding stress and anxiety and eating live healthy nutritious foods.
