How do we ever find the real thing?
Just left a link to this post on my Think Slim blog ( http://smallchange.typepad.com/thinkslim ) I’m get more and more amazed at what manufacturers add to our food and it worries me that people eat so many chemicals and fillers in place of the real food and nutrients our bodies are crying out for.
It’s pretty scary to think that the population of the Western world is growing up on manufactured food and what it is doing to the health and energy levels of whole nations.
Isn’t guacamole the real thing simply by virtue of its existence; perhaps as an example of the whole being greater than the sum of it (seemingly un-real) parts?
