Redefining Fast Food

There was once a time when fast food did not have such a bad name.

As highways were constructed across America, business minded individuals realized they could meet the nutrient needs of weary travelers.

Burger stops used fresh ground beef and locally sourced potatoes, chicken spots conducted business with local farms, and eating out was just like eating at home.

Sadly, the wave of mass production, big food, and convenience has bulldozed most of those ideas and concepts right over, and now a fast food meal will give you more trouble than it will give you any benefits.

Even supposed healthy food is packed with unhealthy fats and oils as well as chemicals and dyes that can cause lasting effects.

Why Americans Choose Fast Food

It comes as no surprise that many Americans choose fast food.

It’s cheap and easy!

We are an overworked, overstressed, far-too-busy-to-think society that feels cornered into just grabbing some greasy food for the family before heading home.

With so few hours in the day, it seems like the only option.

Today, most Americans get 60% of their daily food from processed and packaged sources.

As a result, we are a nation of obesity, heart disease, and cancer.

And we don’t even really talk about it in daily life! We rarely make the connection between what we eat and how we feel, much less long term, downrange consequences like diabetes and dementia.

But the evidence is quite clear.
