Just an observation

            A lot of us are worried that we don’t know what they put in our food; I think the biggest stop to that is to eat less. I mean think about it for a second, the reason why our chickens and cows are getting pumped with steroids, are corn fed instead of grass fed, is because they are being bred for mass production. If they were to let a cow or chicken grow naturally, that would take longer and well, “we don’t have that kind of time” when it comes down to eating, we need our food now. Big business created a way to speed up the process. We live in a time of now. We want everything now. We want to be able to go to the store and purchase meat without having to think about it; so slaughter houses and GMO was created. This is what we asked for isn’t it? 

Not really, we didn’t want that, we just want to make sure there’s an abundance of food at will. I feel this can happen but we as the people need to figure out a way; I think the way is by eating less. For example, have you ever been to the market and spent close to $200 dollars or more on food, just to turn around and go buy fast food? I’m sure you have, I know I have and it makes you wonder.  I understand, usually it’s later in the day when you go shopping and if you have kids, time begins to run short, you have to put the food away, you might  stop and talk to your love ones, help out someone with homework, maybe just talk to someone about their day, maybe your spouse might’ve had a long day at work, maybe your kid is being bullied at school or maybe the teacher is not understanding the way your child learns, there’s something that can get in the way of cooking; ordering fast food kills multiple birds with one stone, no pun intended.  

So I understand, because by the time you actually can get down to cooking, it’s late and the kids cannot go to bed hungry (or they could for some parents) and eating late is not such a great idea….so it makes it difficult. This message isn’t just for families it’s also for singles as well. How many times have you done the scenario up above, than one of your friends texts or calls you and say’s, “hey, we’re going to the bar tonight? You down?” “Yeah I’m down, let me put the groceries away, shower and get dressed; Usually this means you’re not cooking and you’ll grab something to eat later. These examples may not fit everyone all the time, but think about when it does happen to you... all these fast food chains with long lines, fast food spots and restaurants open 24 hours, usually have an abundance of people in them; then you turn around and find yourself in long lines at the grocery store? 0_O I live in a metropolitan so that could be the results of too many people but you think at some point, something would be kind of empty right? 

    My point: There’s probably two pounds of hamburger meat or less in one’s freezer yet were still out buying a hamburger or something along those lines; doesn’t that sound funny?  Eat less meat and the genocide of our food will stop. We’ll eventually start to see farmers come back into business and guess what? I believe the rate of diabetes will (in my Beastie boys voice) DRROOPP. I’m not saying don’t support fast food or restaurant business because these places represent going out and having a good time with loved ones, but balance it out. The one thing our ancient societies believed in was balance. The indigenous people and many other cultures believed in balance; they didn’t rape the land yet they still were able to have a good time. This also ties into money. If you have noticed, the middle class is slowly starting to disappear and the rich have become overly abundant in money; the new middle class means you’re a millionaire.  I’m not going  into that, that’s a whole new post on it‘s own but it’s something you might want to chew the fat on. Money, food, these things are tied together to business and lifestyle; we are all connected and disconnected at the same time. Eat less meat with your meal, there are tons of foods out there that have protein and I’ll show you a few right now in case you’re wondering
1. Eggs
2. Cottage Cheese
3. Quinoa
4. Pumpkin seeds
5. Dried beans
6. Soy milk (or just milk or Lactose milk if needed)
7. Greek yogurt
8. Peanut Butter
9. Almonds
10. Wild rice

            These 10 foods if consumed throughout the day can help with protein. If one were to eat meat in the morning, and maybe eat meat at night, the rest of ones day could consist of the foods listed above. One does not have to become a vegan or vegetarian, just eat less meat. I might be wrong but I'm almost sure less meat would stop or slow down the slaughter and hormone pumping of our what do I know, I'm just a blogger. (No Sarcasm, actual truth) lol.
