From the Melanated Man:
I was grocery shopping at Wal-Mart (smh) the other day and I was browsing through the aisles getting the items I normally get for my family and myself. I checked out the ingredients on some of the items that I had for my wife and kids (because of course, I eat only FRESH PRODUCE now) and began to become depressed. There were a couple of items that I was considering buying for myself (some almond milk, please!) and I put it back on the shelf because of the EXCESS ingredients in these items.
Trust me, I have cravings for some cereal (organic corn flakes, I mind you) or a nice fruit smoothie with almond milk. That doesn’t sound bad, right?
Well if you consider how many ingredients are in almond milk then you will understand why I placed it back in the freezer.
What CAN I eat these days?
Now I understood a while ago food that is pre-packaged, not fresh, or self grown is 100% of the time a RISK to eat, let alone buy it. Habits die hard and it took me awhile to overcome eating it myself.
Now I battle with buying the shit for my loved ones with full knowledge of the damage it could cause them. My wife, of course has to make the decision to change in her own time.
My baby girls… they don’t know any better.The Oreos, Tombstone Pizza, the Skittles and M&Ms..
It KILLS me. And at times I feel I have failed them. It’s never too late. Although they’ve grown accustomed to the ARTIFICIAL, I will do everything in my power to guide them in the right direction.
If you don’t have a farm or *your own garden, PLEASE STAY CONSCIOUS during your grocery excursions.
Look out for your family’s best interest…
Peace and Love to my melanated family,
The Melanated Man
