With obesity widely accepted and type 2 diabetes raging amongst adults and children alike, somewhere there has to be a stop to it all. But, how and where does this take place? Is it a problem that the federal and state governments can absolve? No, it has to start with personal accountability and a willingness to change the way that food is viewed. Aspartame, monosodium glutamate, food colorings, and every other preservative in between have to be considered extremely toxic to the body. Without families taking a stand, innocent children will be sent to their graves at an early age. The only way to make the necessary changes to put a stop to preventable diseases (such as type 2 diabetes) is to use exclusively natural food recipes while cooking.
What is a natural food recipe? It is a recipe that contains solely whole food ingredients. The best way to tell if a recipe is processed or artificial is by its components. If it contains foods that are packaged and have a long shelf life with more than a few ingredients, then it is not a natural food. Also, those complicated words on the food labels are usually artificial. That is a great indicator of how real it is. For example, what would the food label on a tomato read? All that is contained in a tomato is a tomato. Actually, the concept is quite simple. When combining ingredients into a recipe, those ingredients should typically only be themselves. That realization provides a wide variety of possibilities while concocting in the kitchen. It makes it an exciting experience to cook again!
Some of the greater challenges that come when making natural food recipes are soup based recipes. This is typically the case because homemade broths usually take planning and preparation to have on hand. But, while planning the weekly menu, simply plan to make homemade beef broth and chicken broth to use in soups the following day or two. In fact, making an all natural Chicken Noodle Soup is rather simple and can even be put together in the slow cooker. By simply adding 4 cups homemade chicken broth, 2 cups water, 1 chicken breast, 2 cups of carrots and celery, 2 teaspoons of thyme, ½ teaspoon of black pepper, 2 teaspoons of sea salt, and 1/3 package of fettuccine noodles, a delicious all natural chicken noodle soup has been concocted. Thankfully this rids of any form of MSG along with any other added preservative. This soup is so tantalizing to the taste buds that it is challenging to quit on one serving. Also, by making this homemade soup there will not arise any nasty side effects (like MSG headaches) that usually come from the artificial chicken noodle recipes.
Another fabulous all natural food recipe is homemade Beef Stew. This soup is similar to the Chicken Noodle Soup. It requires a little planning and preparation, but is extremely simple to create. The exciting revelation with this meal is that it can also reside in a slow cooker. That is a great way to ensure that dinner is all natural even if time is of the essence. The stew can be placed in the slow cooker in the morning and then savored after a hectic work day. The smell that wafts throughout the house will entice all those present to devour this meal immediately. The few minutes that it took to add 6 cups homemade beef broth, 3 celery ribs, 3 carrots, 4 potatoes, 2 cups precooked roast beef, 1 teaspoon of thyme, 1 teaspoon basil, ½ teaspoon black pepper, and 3 teaspoons of sea salt will make it all worth it.
All natural food recipes are not very complicated and the taste that they evoke makes them definitely superior to their artificial counterparts. Changing the American problem of obesity and diabetes cannot be done as an entire country. It will start to occur when 1 family makes a commitment to eat whole foods and then shares their discovery and knowledge with their friends and neighbors. Then as their friends and neighbors realize how critical it is to consume whole foods, they will then in turn share it with others. That will be the process of revolutionizing the way Americans view food!
