In this post I want to show our viewers why the food system within American culture is the way it is and possible resolutions for fixing it. Step one turn on your Telivision. What do you see? Lets start with the channels that our children and the next generations watch. Food that is advertised on these channels are picked specifically for their target audience, children. You see magic Irishman prancing around with gold and this little magic cereal that kids are like “Hell yeah, are those magic marshmallows in there?” Then you flip to other kids channels and see kids playing with toys and eating a mutated cheeseburger and you’re kids are all like “You mean all I have to do is eat that strange piece of meat that you’re serving and I get to play with this plastic piece of crap for twenty minutes before I forget about it… count me in”. You smack your hand to the middle of your face in disappointment as you watch these stupid freaking kids. Instead of continuing to tell you more and more problems with the system I think it’s always good to be constructive and positive in a primal lifestyle. So, How do we fix this problem within American society? We need to start by guiding the children in the right direction. When was the last time you saw healthy primal foods being marketed to children. There need to be kid friendly public service announcements warning children against eating the crap they see on TV. Thought for food, think about it.
