A crash course in changing the world.
March 10, 2020.
I'm at home. I grabbed some takeaway on the way home from work - just the usual - organic stir fry with some free range chicken. It tastes ok, not as great as my food though. Although the food is concious of the origins of its ingredients, I cannot help noticing the fat content is relatively high. I check the nutrition information which I find within the takeaway bag. I sigh. My food is definitely healthier than this. Oh well. It shall have to do.
Nothing much on tv. I hungrily feed away, stopping eventually on a cooking show on ABC1. Mmm.. I close my eyes, almost tasting the brownies on the screen. Organic brownies? If someone had mentioned that 10 years ago I would have most probably laughed. I have become increasingly aware of my food intake. Although unhealthy, dodgy and unreliable food sources still exist, atleast the global community has become more aware of their nutrition. It never fails to amaze me how long it has taken people to take an interest in their own food, and to actually start growing their own food. Community vegetable, fruit and herb gardens are slowly establishing themselves as people are slowly beginning to embrace the services on offer.
People are finally understanding, even if it has taken them quite a while.
