#KISS #Fruits #Vegetables
In a milieu stimulated by external influences, insidious jargons, lackluster vision, fashionable culinary, imbalanced ambitions, confusing information, we seem to have relegated our health to improper & arguably toxic diets, where we’re clueless about the source of our food, its imminent effect on the body, the knowledge of diet based on existential considerations, our strong & conditioned likings for certain food, the barrage of broken down information which the food companies feed us with their obvious bias for maintaining quarterly profits, reading the deliberately cryptic Nutrients labels, the composition of the food in terms of its elemental values and the grander, evolutionary perspective on which is the most absorbable and effective food we should consume to ascertain health.
There are many modern perspectives on this topic and an entire industry is attempting to make some sense on food, while parallelly the healthcare costs keep sky-rocketing, and even the most affluent nations face the scornful plight of having to eat packaged, processed and modified food for their daily meals.
For a lay man, its all confusing as the supermarkets fill themselves with variety of packaged foods and the heavy advertising behind it creates the necessary raucous to keep us confused.
KISS (Keep it simple stupid) principle, popularized by the US Navy in the 1960’s, states that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated; therefore simplicity should be a key goal and unnecessary complexity should be avoided. Our body’s ability to ingest, digest & excrete food, suggests that it is a system, and keeping a simpler diet, filled with more fruits, veggies, nuts & berries, implies a simple & powerful defense against the confusion around our daily diet. In the spirit of KISS and consuming easily digestible & absorbable food, sending some local varieties of fruits & veggies for a culinary merriment!
Happy KISS-ing 🙂…
