Abused By Food Rewiring our mentality

When we first walked around this earth, there was no pop tarts, Doritos, candy bars, Frosted Flakes, and a whole mess of other endless choices of sugar/ sodium chemical "spiced" processed foods. Now in the present day of our lives we are succumbed to rely on these items to live.

Did your first Burger meal come with a Toy?

Almost makes you wonder what humanity have done for the last few thousand years, before Kraft came to give us nurishment. The fact of the matter is, most of us know these foods are less than beneficial, although every year it becomes more imbedded into the way of life as it comes to nutrition. Convience, is the main driving force in terms of why we rely so heavily on these products to survive, as major Food Corporations will sit in front of Nutritionist, Critics, and Lobbyist. Using the defense of the only way we can keep a over populated world from starving to death,is to rely on there products. Painting a picture of fear, which is a hard debate to counter. All the while farmers are paid to not plant food (to drive pricing), and Monsanto seeds are used more and more, to keep the rules of the game unbalanced. All the while Mega Markets get these products for pennies on the dollar, Market them as daily BOGO deals, drawing in consumers to fill there carts with these "deals". While also grabbing an organic coconut lotion from aisle 4, finishing up in the electronic section buying a new smartphone assessary with all the savings from our food purchases before checking out, with their week of nourishments. Repeating this circle of life over and over. Then the question is always asked: "Why can I never seem to get control of my weight?"

85% of the food sold in markets today, did not exist 100 years ago

It is time to change the way we view our relationship with food, as well use food for pretty much all emotions: When we are celebrating, social events, moments of mourning, fear of not being able to eat, pure enjoyment, reuniting with others, a coping mechanism from many aspects of abuse,counteraction of depression, forms of entertainment, and sheer boredom. I can say I have used the tool of food for every reason I just wrote. I have a question to ask: Can you remember your first memory of when food was a moment of happy euphoria? Some will say a candy bar at the store, or grandpa taking you for icecream, that road trip where you where taken to the Golden Arches for the first time, getting a lil box and a toy. I though about where I began to be embedded into having a relationship with food, was around the age of one, as I got gifts and a moment of honor, just for me on my special day.Along with my name on a Cake. This is a small example of how we have mentally been wired to see food,with most not comprehending what food really is designed for:
