The necessity of cooking has empowered our species for millennium. Enabling us to evolve into the planets sophisticated inhabitants. However, what defines us as sophisticated? Does our ability to light a match or marinated a sirloin give us the sophistication appropriate to keep our bodies healthy? A person would think this to be the case. On the contrary, why then where the people back in early America free of chronic heart disease? And why where prehistoric peoples, hunters and gatherers, free of modern diseases like diabetes?
The new diseases that our children face are frightening. My roles as a mother, as a health care provider and a rancher give me the knowledge and the experience to refine my skills as a cook to be constantly evaluating the cooking that our culture is accustomed to and maintain a standard of wholesome sustenance.
Wholesome sustenance is defined then, as what? My definition of wholesome sustenance is, the natural food resources that are readily available to us in America. Now, I am talking about Americans and to all other first world countries. Natural food resources in America are everywhere. And natural food is cheap. Food commodities have inflated just 4 percent over the past twenty years according to statistics. Let us give more definition to what we mean by natural food.
Natural food is defined as, food from nature. Food that has not been processed nor altered from it’s natural state. Food that ha not been made sweeter, been made brighter nor more colorful. Natural foods do not need to be titled as “organic”. The title of “organic” gives foods a higher price tag, any more benefit than that is debatable.
Natural foods are not foods that are precooked nor prepared and packaged. This includes things like pancake batter and frozen baked goods. Natural wholesome foods are, or must be obvious. If in doubt don’t eat it and don’t give it to your kids.
