Is the number one killer today, heart disease, a foregone conclusion? Are human beings hardwired to expire from clogged arteries?
It has long been my contention that human beings are born to live healthy lives from cradle to grave without any of the afflictions plaguing modern societies.
It's the food.
Modern food is produced to maximize profit not health. Every society on this planet that has been influenced by the Western diet, societies that are pulling themselves out of the poverty associated with all developing countries, societies that allow Western food production methods in, have all become at risk.
Breakfast for me today was a large bowl of steel cut oatmeal cooked with a tablespoon of chia seeds, a tablespoon of hemp hearts, and a handful of berries for sweetness. Sometimes I'll throw in a few walnuts or chopped apple but not today.
I put this together last night in my rice/grain cooker, set the timer and it was ready when I woke up.
