The Trouble With Fast Food

McDonald’s commissioned an independent television set production company to produce an one-hour special where six random Australians were given the task of investigating the complete food-making process. Whilst McDonald’s funded the project, and their food-making processes were the ones scrutinised, it’s clear very little was hidden from these independent ‘food critics’. This program showed that McDonald’s food, and probably most major fast-food string offerings, is actually relatively healthy – and more hygienic and fresher than we think. tellthebell com

Junk food companies have always gone to great lengths to encourage the eating public of the wholesomeness of their food. It’s an extremely profitable business. However one of the business hazards, in a health-conscious time, is having a reputation tainted by thought that your food is detrimental or, worse, disgusting. 

Therefore, typical fast food – in the key – is secure for consumption and may be moderately healthy. But why do some of us feel harmful having eaten it? In comparison to a serving of grandma’s pot roast where we felt sated and fulfilled, fast food is likely to leave us feeling unfulfilled, spiritually.

I have a thesis about food: the only prepared food profitable to us is the meals cooked with love. That may be, food cooked for a known individual to eat. Food cooked with them at heart. It’s food that has soul.

FOODSTUFF SHOULD BE PREPARED WITH PRIDE

In the most healthy sense, proud is the cook that makes their food to please the eater. They have a vested interest in everything they do. They want to create it yummy, hygienic, and aesthetic on the plate. They care and attention. They cook their food with love. And they want their food consumed with love and admiration for the process.

Fast food, on the other hand, is an ignored child whose parent not loves the food, their work, nor the device of the meals. It’s made with no soul or spirit. It may complete our bellies and feed our bodies, but the experience of eating fast food does nothing to nourish our souls.

We all should always become keen experts showing how food makes us feel, and although food of itself will not make us evil, our practices will often make all of us feel that way. Sense bloated or dry in the mouth or queer are generally psychosomatic signs that the expertise of eating certain food hasn’t recently been positive. The food has not served its nourishing goal.

THE SERVICE THAT GETS INTO WITH THE FOOD

Anytime we go to fast food delivery restaurants, not only is the food not grilled with love, it has been not served with love. Patrons are commonly treated as second-class residents; mainly because anyone providing them has no propriety. They’ve not been taught to care.

Wherever we go ahead life it pays, as much as possible, to put ourselves in situations and circumstances of good experience. Enriching experience is good for the soul. Putting ourselves in non-enriching experience, though, brings about a deadening of the soul. The service that comes with the food is merely as important as the eating experience is. The service, too, must come with love.

The trouble with fast food is it’s generally not cooked properly nor served with love. Often it’s prepared and cooked by people with no stake in it is consumption. Consuming food is a spiritual activity. In the event that we care enough for ourselves and those we love we limit our reliance on fast food. We’ll still eat it, perhaps, but less so.
