We live in a fast paced world where no one ever has the time to think about themselves and their health anymore because everyone is too busy rushing around to work, to meetings and back again. The most common type of food today has become the junk food available for high protein snacks at big corporations like McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other such institutions that have identified this fast paced trend in modern society and are trying to make as much money from it as possible without so much as a thought for the wellbeing of the consumers.
These big corporations have recognized that young people no longer have time to cook meals for themselves, they no longer have time to go out marketing for vegetables, fruits and whole food. In order to exploit this lifestyle that young people live today big corporations have developed junk food that are not only nutritionally deficient but also packed with dangerous chemicals and preservatives that are making our world sick. Everywhere around us we are seeing young people falling sick, malnourished, nutritionally deficient, and even contracting fatal diseases like cancer. Cancer statistics are rising drastically in front of our eyes and the average human being no longer knows these statistics and no longer cares because they are busy with their own lives.
Saying no to fast food
Although many doctors and medical professionals will tell us to say no to fast food, they do not give young people a realistic alternative to this dangerous food that they eat. It is unrealistic to expect these busy young people to stay home and spend time cooking when they are busy working long hours and building up their future. The best alternative to fast food is to raw bar such as nuts, dried fruit, seeds and other natural food that can be stored in a handbag and eaten on the run while running from one meeting to another.
There are many healthy snack recipes on the internet if you were to look for them that can be prepared on a Sunday and kept for the whole week. It is important for young people to maintain a healthy balanced plant based whole foods diet and we need to give them ways of doing this without spending too much money and time on it.
Big corporations need to provide young people with easy to eat healthy snacks such as granola, muesli and chemical free cereals.
