In our consumerism world of today, a dollar gets you a quick burger, but this book is questioning what is the real cost of that meal? On you health? We are facing an increase of chronic disease such as diabetes and obesity. Our “modern” lifestyles have turn upside down in recent years getting people out of their family kitchen. The term meal does not resonate as family time anymore, and it is more something that we need to do while driving, or between two chores, or even worst the face pointing on your computer/phone/tablet. You know I am a big reader and I spend a lot of time reading on my Nook. However, eating and reading are two separate things for me and they should exactly be treated like that. There is time to eat and time to read and each of them deserve my full attention.
Cost of Medical expenses related to those “new” disease are ever higher while “threatening to give America its first generation to actually live shorter lives than their parents.” Which sound horrific? Doesn’t it? And what about all those new disease like contiguous warts, without the Wartrol Reviews and the other treatment out there some of us will be worst than better. Unfortunately finding good nutrition is not that easy not that fast-food have monopolized the market and are literally everywhere, convenient and cheap. More Americans live in cities, far from the old common farmer’s field and the theory of self-sufficiency. To overcome distance and limited time because of our drastic way of living population are not relying on industry (which mean transformed, ready to eat food) to put dinner on the table. However, those industry do not have our best interest at heart (even if the slogan mention it). CEO, Management and Stock holder value efficiency and short-term profits over our children health.
The book was written by Congressman Tim Ryan who shows a certain joy of farm-fresh produce. In this book, he presents easy, actionable steps that anyone can take, from starting a garden to tactics to implement nutrition education in schools.
He also present some of the current food revolutionaries, who are shining examples of people who saw a problem with how we think about food today, rolled up their sleeves, and raised a crop of positive change. Overall a really great book full that will motivate you and empower you to make a change. This book really emphasis the effect on small change individually means big change collectively and that we are all winner at the end.
