I took a very long time trying to get into a good habit of cooking. Much of the reason that I struggled was because I was homeless in some large cities that don’t give any privacy for outdoor cooking. So I gave in to eating too many prepared foods with added sugar and fat extracts. My biggest breaking point was when I consumed an extra large box of Grape Nuts within a short time -hoping that it could bring some relief to my constipation. Instead, the cereal attacked my appetite and colon with a force that further compiled damage and led to a permanent tightness around my appendix now.
I believe there are many other people like me who fall victim to these additives and not have any great way to work around the sugar extracts. Statistics are announcing, that more young people than ever are living homeless. What are the implications of living homeless? One of the worst things is that they give up on cooking and use their food stamps for prepared extracts at local gas stations. The convenience of prepared foods are sacrificed instead of healthy cooked foods.
Already, young people learn bad habits of buying junk foods while living as home dwellers. The problem compounds itself when these people suffer the health effects of their poor choices, become homeless victims and don’t develop positive cooking habits.
The best way for the young to save themselves is to cook. Cook good whole, real foods, and cook it often. If you don’t prepare your own foods, then the prepared manufacturers will be preying on your health and preparing you for an early grave.
