Aldric, I hear you, but right now I am writing another piece that I hope may at least turn this argument around to a certain extent. I have started to preface some of this writing by assuring people that I am not one of these wealthy people who get on the stage to tell people how to live. I grew up in Scotland where everyone was poor and we had a poor-man’s diet, but now, when I reflect on things, we had a rich diet, and that was because poor people knew something about nourishment…what I have referred to as nose-to-tail eating in my next article. My mother made amazing food out of what the wealthy would have turned their noses up at, and we were healthy kids.
I have lived and worked in third-world countries and I totally get your perspective, because that was me in my childhood. Processed food is a killer, and if I can help some people believe that they can be much more healthy in small ways, I will be a happy woman. I’ll have fulfilled a dream.
