For the sake of today’s post I’m going to share something I’m not overly proud of. One Saturday night many, many years ago I went out with my friends to a club on the Sunshine Coast called Fridays. We had drinks, danced and were having a merry ol’ time until one of the bouncers decided it was time for me to leave. Removed from the club, I found myself out on the footpath waiting for my friends to come out. With no one to talk to and alco-cravings ravishing my stomach I decided it was a great idea to eat something from the hot box outside the club. “What it that?” I asked, pointing to some unidentified object in the tray. “Mystery meat,” said the vendor. Now I want you to know that under more sober circumstances I would have screwed my nose up at what he was offering me, but with vodka-soaked principles, I thought “What the heck! I’ll take three.”
I know that is not the most flattering story, but I felt it perfectly illustrates just how much times have changed for me. This long-winded introduction also brings us to the point of today’s post – just how bad processed meat is for you. I’m going to take the easy, yet much more effective route and let some pictures prove this point. One of my favourite websites, Natural News recently published a slideshow of images zooming in on various types of packaged processed meat products. Check it out and see for yourself what these companies are trying to disguise as edible, safe-to-consume food.
Positive affirmation for the day: Today I will wait in quiet and faith for a clear answer before making any decisions. Today I feel secure, trusting that my instincts are guiding me on every step of my path.
