People are too lazy to cook and organic/non gmo/hormone free foods are a luxury. end of story.

 

 

I love to eat, so I learned how to cook. Plus I'm from the southwest, it's kind of a requirement. Cooking anything from scratch is likely to be better for you than canned/frozen/jarred foods. Sometimes it's more fattening -- of course real butter has more calories than whatever margarine or butter substitute was used in that boxed lean cuisine -- but still more natural and better for your body to break down.

Some people don't enjoy cooking as much as you, others, and myself do. They would rather have someone else cook for them. I know dudes who eat out twice a day (where they get the money who knows) but it's ridiculous. Rather than get a bag of pasta and some sauce, which takes $4 and all of 15 minutes to cook, they'd drop $20 on cafeteria food in a shitty restaurant. lame. lazy people can't be saved.

 

Some people simply don't have the time (say... after working 2 jobs, coming home and knowing you have to get up and do it again the next day.) There is the whole "make a bunch of food at once and the freeze it/eat leftovers all week" sure, but that requires taking half a day out of your day off, just to save time throughout the week. When I was working 2 jobs, the last thing I wanted to do on my single day off was spend half of it in the kitchen. If I really really wanted a home cooked meal, then I did it once or twice a week at the expense of other activities. That was and is my recreation, rather than going out to the park, hanging out with friends (unless I could afford to feed them too) or running errands.

 

Secondly, I work for Whole Foods and half the time can't afford to shop there. Most of the time a $6 bag of produce (/yes pesticides) from the Mercado is what gets me by. It beats the hell out of canned veggies, though. But hey, Whole Foods sells canned and frozen veggies too... I've got a bag of their frozen organic corn in my freezer right now. It can't be all that bad, no?

Meat? eggs? oops, not cage free either.

 

If you think about it too hard, sure, it sounds gross eating food with hormones and pesticides, so I simply don't think about it.

 

The way I have to shop for myself, I couldn't even imagine having one child, much less two and a husband to feed. Whole Foods is great for staple stuff like pasta, flour, canned veggies (like the tomatoes I use to make sauce from scratch), I can make it last a while but our $0.99 pasta doesn't beat out the 3/$1.00 at safeway or lucky that's going to feed a family of 4 or 5. Whether it's paid for with food stamps or not, it still has to last them.

 

 

So pretty much, for the people who don't care about their diet, why should I care? for the people who do, and can't manage to eat the way that's best for them, why should I fault them?

Fuck whole foods and salt.

 

farmer's markets are great places to find organic, fresh, less expensive produce and shit.

if you had pate....its KINDA like that.

 

 

there is definitely a meaty flavor and texture...yet really rich and great with just a touch of salt on top. its spreadable like butter and goes real nice with brioche.

 

it's really good on top of a nice steak too.
