Within our life time our food supply and the way we eat are going to radically change. It has too.
Isn’t it always this way? We are at the beginning of a revolution and very few people in general even know. I’m sure at the beginning of the American Revolution it was only a handful of people who knew what was going on and kept the ball rolling. That is the case with the Food Revolution too.
Over the last 30 or 40 years, the world, and in particular, the United States has gotten into some very, very bad habits and unhealthy ways. Sure, the 60’s promised that we’d have robots to do everything for us and that technology would solve all our problems. NOT!
One very good example is that technology developed HFCS. That is High Fructose Corn Syrup. You may have heard some of the recent farm bureau adds saying that HFCS has gotten a bad name and that it is all natural. Please. EVERYTHING is all natural. HFCS have undergone “enzymatic” processing to make it sweeter. Since the 1970’s the sugar in all our drinks in the US have been replaced by HFCS. Our kids are obese. Might be a correlation?
I don’t want to make this post too long, because I could go on and on. My point is that the country’s food supply has changed and we need to get back to our old ways.

Let’s teach our children the proper way to eat again.
