Food porn… Food and Porn, what a combo. Recently I’ve come across this phrase on several occasions. To me porn is something that creates an immediate heightened response, draws you in with lofty promises, artificially excites, it pulls your trigger but in the end leaves you empty and spent… pun intended. A majority of the “food” that people consume these days is more like pornography than food… all airbrushed(artificial), sweaty(salt), processed, stimulating (food additives) and propagandized (advertising). Did you ever notice the picture on the DVD… or box of food always looks 100 times better than what actually comes out of the box? It’s all empty calories, it all leaves you empty.
As you incorporate more live foods back into your life that is what you get… more life. Porno ain’t just on the net or at the video store… it’s on almost every aisle of the grocery store. You know what I’m talking about. I remember the days of staring blankly into the beer cooler or the ice cream freezer… c’mon, my favorite Ben and Jerry’s flavor was Karamel Sutra… now I can make a raw vegan version. That’s the beauty of live foods… porn foods were most likely reverse engineered from something natural. I think everyone out there can agree, in the end, natural beats artificial every time.
Porn Food: Hawaiian Punch
Natural Food: Habiscus Cooler
2 C Iced Habiscus Tea
1 C Fresh Squeezed OJ
1/2 C Pineapple juice
1 C sparkling water
Pinch of Himalayan or other healthy salt
Sweeten with agave, raw honey, stevia…
The above recipe tastes exactly like Hawaiian Punch or vice versa…. and it won’t stain your upper lip red.
Just say “no” to food porn… it’s a start. Eventually you can lose the rest of the porn in your life as well.
