Is anyone else horrified by the food wastage since this pandemic! This is NOT a new issue. It’s predicted that 40% of the produce grown in the USA is dumped and this statistic has only increased since the ‘plandemic’ started. This is just INFURIATING!
World hunger is still one of the greatest contributors to child death globally and yet we cannot get on top of the supply chains and distribution of such a basic need. It’s 2020, how is this acceptable?
Those who are WOKE to this global situation I know feel as sad, disgusted, and live in as much disbelief as I do around such a basic human need. The reality we all face is that the deep underdogs that drive politics, the economy, health care, and food are one and the same. Despite this I do believe we have a role to play and that we can make a difference in our own way.
Here are 3 ways I believe we can empower ourselves despite the realities of food wastage and shortage:
1. Knowledge is power, it has NEVER been more essential to read, listen and wake up to the global and political agendas and how they affect what you have access to and the prices you pay for food. If you want to learn more PLEASE book a free 20-minute consult with me, I would LOVE to help you learn about how to get access to affordable and sustainable organic food in your city. I have a lot of ideas and connections in this space. Book a free 20-minute consult with me now.
2. Support local! Whether it’s raw produce or your entertainment budget (yeah I know, much reduced for those of us in lockdown) you can find and source locavore restaurants, farmers markets, and supply chains. Most major cities in the world have organic co-ops and food supply groups you can join and barter with so that you all can contribute to greater affordability, greater nutrient availability and crop rotation, and most importantly less waste.
Health and longevity is about the FUEL we use to heal, strengthen, and nourish our body. I’m excited to share my new podcast about this topic will be launched shortly where I am excited to bring more powerful knowledge about what we can all do to thrive even when we can feel powerless and that the world and powers that be are against us. ds is now becoming increasingly popular and easy to find. Whether you make/grow your own booch (kombucha), bone broth, microgreens, sprouts, organic produce or seedlings you can be a pioneer in your community and friendship groups by creating your own exchanges. Now is the time for greater innovation so that you are more self-reliant and also have access to more at affordable prices.
