When healthy food breaks the bank while fast food burgers cost less than a cup of soda ?⠀
.⠀
This, my friends, is why for the first time in human history, there are more overweight people walking the earth than underweight. Why might this be? Well for one, our planted landmass in the United States is largely taken up by wheat, corn and soy production. We eat much of these subsidized crops, but also a lot of it is refined into oils and sugar that is then fed to cows (which also get a hefty subsidy.)⠀
.⠀
5% of the planted landmass in the United States is dedicated to growing vegetables, which is perhaps one reason why they’re relatively so expensive! 90% of Americans do not consume enough of them, according to the CDC, and may explain why the same proportion is deficient in at least one vitamin or mineral.⠀
.⠀
When you consider the research showing how one large daily salad (something I’m an advocate for and talk about in my book Genius Foods) might actually prevent brain aging, it becomes evident that society seems to want youthful, high performance brains to be a privilege of the upper class. Maybe that’s it’s way of maintaining the status quo. But I think we can change that. What say you?
