Bloggers Choice today for the 40 day exercise – Fr. John has given us free reign to choose a topic.
Those of you who know me know that I am into the “Food Movement” – basically, educating yourself about what we eat, where it comes from, what is in it, etc. This naturally leads us towards organic, non-genetically modified food or, as it used to be called years ago, food. There are many, many reasons to go this route but the basic one is that what we put into our bodies should be what we are meant to eat. Our bodies are not designed to process artificial ingredients, GMOs, insanely high gluten content from hybridized wheat, chickens who have never seen the light of day, etc. I addressed the spiritual element to this a few days ago in my post about fasting. The good news is that there are people out there doing yeoman’s work on this topic. Recently the Food Babe posted on Subway, which is the largest chain restaurant in the world and one that many of us consider to be a healthful alternative to your typical fast-food place. Well, check out the chart that she has developed through her own research and tell me what you think.
