As I ordered my brown rice, broccoli, and tofu I was grateful for the option available to me and grateful that eating whole foods has become more common in the Arab world, but as I reach out for the bill, my wallet is very ungrateful for how light it gets every time (or most of the time ) I eat out or even just buy food.
Then, I look around the fast food joints and see how crowded they are with customers and how they have conquered the food industry. The marketing, the kids meal and how they make the meals with a theme and how you have to come back and collect all happy meal toy figures. It’s all brilliant. I wish health food restaurants would put in the same effort, but most of them are too busy overpricing their foods or just surviving through this fast food epidemic
Then, I look at the price of their meals and its shocking how dirty cheap it is. I hadn’t eaten at a fast food restaurant in over 2 years, so I was kind of living in my own bubble for a while, but as I took a look inside again, it makes complete sense that people are fat, sick and nearly dead.
The food is so cheap and its easier and more convenient to feed a family of five, affordable FAST food. We are going through an epidemic here, and all we can do is vote with our coin.
Please let’s ask ourselves why is fast food so cheap?! How can meat be that affordable (hint: it’s not real meat) and why have we become sicker than ever. Just food for thought.
A few simple tips to eating healthier whole foods would be to simply eat outside less, buy in bulks and invest your time learning how to cook simple healthy foods such as rice, corn, vegetables, wholewheat pasta etc.
I urge you all again to vote with your coin, save yourselves and your loved ones from diabetes, heart disease, cholesterol and boycott the fast food mafia with all you’ve got.
