Nibbling on a slice of apple covered in raw cacao paste and sprinkled with sunflower seeds stimulates the mind. Each bite a cool, sweet crunchy delight. It’s very refreshing and, once a couple pieces of raw cheddar cheese are added to the mix, a quick, easy and tastey breakfast. I’m eating a plate of this delicacy right now, staring at the rising shoots of mystery-crop popping up out of the ground in the nearby field and wondering…
Is it corn or soybean?
I guess it doesn’t really matter because whatever it is it’s genetically engineered, needs a ton of fertilizer and weed killer tossed on it just to survive into maturity, and it will eventually be hauled up the highway to the giant agri-bus outfit that already owns the contract on it.
The stuff may as well be “corn-bean”. I sure as hell will never be eating a single bite of it. Nor will I ever be eating any of the creatures that are going to be fed the stuff.
Remember: “You are what you eat.” And, if a cow eats nothing but animal feed made of corn and soybean, the cow pretty much becomes corn-bean.
Don’t become corn-bean.
Look good, feel good, be well: Eat a diverse diet, consisting of assorted fruits and vegetables, seeds and nuts, whole grains and free-range, grass fed animal products. You will never regret it.
