Eating "healthy" very discouraging

* (@Thewakinglife) 8 years, 1 month ago

It seems like the food industry is really fucked up. All they care about is making money and food quality is complete shit. I try not to eat junk food anymore and i stay away from fast food and greasy foods but i feel like it’s not enough. Today i found out that the olive oil i just bought is already spoiled even tho it says it doesn’t expire for months. Later i found out that over 75% of the “healthy” omega 3 tablets on the market are spoiled before they reach consumers. In fact they hurt you more than they help. I usually don’t believe in supplements but i don’t eat fish often with all the mercury and i don’t really like the taste so i thought i was doing a good thing but i was wrong. Many of the healthy foods marketed to us are just from the company’s who can pay the most to bribe the FDA. It’s truly a corrupt and fucked up system that needs to change.

Gaining perspective on how to still eat healthy despite the current situation tends to add up and overtime becomes easier with less effort and time as one would initially invest into geeking out about smart food shopping/consumption, so don’t lose hope just yet. Real food is more likely to spoil, so its sort of a good thing, haha, make sure you arent contaminating it causing infestation and spoilage. Look up mercury content per seafood type farmed and wild caught and make choices accordingly.
I think the quotes around healthy in this post is fitting. Go forth and find real healthy noms

I grew up on a farm in a rural area and most of the meals I ate where home cooked from good produce and meat. Growing up that became more of a rarity and then I noticed, eating home cooked meals from good produce and meat is actually easier once you learn how to do it right and get into a groove. It’s just most people don’t do it right so they become discouraged when they try it and the find out it is hard when you don’t do it right.

@thewakinglife, where do you live? If the states, Trader Joes is a godsend.
