Is This Even Real Food?

I read a news story yesterday that talked about how someone let a McDonald’s Happy Meal sit out on a plate for 6 months… to make a long story short, the food never started decomposing! Instead of molding and rotting (like real food does) it just turned hard as a rock.

Reading this story made me think about the fact that the Standard American Diet has sooooo many types of “food” that are made of fake ingredients: highly refined & processed ingredients, and things that are just bad for the body. It’s no wonder that we are facing an epidemic of obesity and other dangerous diseases, because these types of foods are so abundant everywhere you go.

Now, don’t get me wrong…. I agree that fast food and junk food tastes delicious! And I wouldn’t be honest if I said that I would never eat something unhealthy again. But, I strive to focus the majority of my eating on wholesome, healthy foods… and then the junk food is just a treat every now and then. Like every once-in-a-blue-moon, not on a regular basis! 😉

The point of this blog post is not to make you feel mad or uncomfortable about eating fast food. Instead, I hope to encourage you to make small changes in your eating habits in order to DECREASE the amount of fast food that you are eating and INCREASE the amount of healthy, whole foods that you are eating.

And the truth is that I actually ate at McDonalds a few weeks ago! Luckily I didn’t eat the hamburgers or french fries (after reading that story, I’m glad I don’t have that food sitting in my gut, LOL!), instead I chose to eat a plain salad with balsamic vinaigrette dressing and a wild berry real fruit smoothie.

By the way, if you would like to read the full story that I read, here is the link: McDonald’s Happy Meal Resists Decomposition For Six Months
