19. In this country there's this weird inclination

 

to treat certain foods as poison, and certain others as magically good. Sometimes a poison food becomes good, or vice versa.

Overall, we don't have a healthy relationship with food. Collectively we eat too much fake food.

And we tend to fall for dumb food fads.

We'd all be better off if we ate real food, not too much.

On a related note, I love to bake. I find that when I make a cake or brownies and bring it to work to share, my co-workers are incredibly grateful and love my treat even more than it deserves. That's because they are for once getting the real thing, not something made from a mix. I've found that even most bakery treats have that faint chemical taste because they are almost always using mixes which have preservatives and who knows what else.

I find that the more I cook for myself, the less I can tolerate commercial foods. I sometimes buy organic, but not that often. What I don't buy are the pre-prepared things anymore.
