Really, Really Thinking About the Way We Eat

I was listening to the radio yesterday and this interview completely captured my attention. These two consumer and food experts discuss how the American palate has been "dumbed down" to these three ingredients: sugar, salt and fat. We have become addicted to these ingredients in food to the point of losing all appreciation for truly tasty food. And the food industry knows it and exploits this to every extent. Food is manufactured to satiate instantly the palate's desire for sugar, salt and fat. Did you know that bacon has 18 ingredients? Really, what should be there besides meat and salt??

Think about re-aligning your palate and savoring your foods.
