Today's topic is all about FOOD. Who else has mindlessly eaten about a million chicken McNuggets in the past? Well, that ship has sailed... forever!
Thank you Love, as always for being here!
If you thought yesterday's topic was a hard pill to swallow... then some of you are going to have a really tough time with today's topic! Let's not get worked up, let's take a deep breath, let's not stick our heads in the sand...
What could be more emotional than a shopping addiction? Basically anything to do with food. And our culture's unhealthy pathology's with foods and the way that food waste is one of the biggest environmental problems on the planet... not to mention the giant fast food chains that seemingly run the world... the industrial sized factory farms that these fast food giants have created (think 20 thousand chickens in a warehouse, 10% of them dying off at 6 months of age due to chronic disease - this is the type of farming I am referring to in this video, I wanted to make that clear for any of my small scale local farmers in the group)
Food is a big topic and a big problem currently... arguably the biggest problem that we currently face...
Who else has mindlessly eaten about a million chicken McNuggets in the past? Well, that ship has sailed... forever! Not just because of the environmental devastation that companies like this are causing but also because of the health implications!
This is a big topic, so it's a bit of a longer video. Please get your earbuds, make your morning tea or breakfast and listen to the information. I apologize for my side tangent about my health journey... but I'm not very good at keeping things to myself.
