I used to think that people in the early days thought of food as fuel. However, I don’t think that any more. I realize now, that people have always simply eaten whatever was around them.
In my grandparent’s day, what was around them was fresh or home canned vegetables, meat and fruit.
In my youth, what was around me was fresh, home canned or commercially canned vegetables, meat and fruit.
Today, all you have to do is walk among the brightly colored packaged food we have sitting on the shelves of our grocery stores to see that we have everything around around us.
We know that 80% of what is on those grocery store shelves is filled with sugar, fat and chemicals of every kind. We also know that obesity, diabetes and other life threatening diseases are rising at an alarming rate. Many still succumb to what’s the cheapest and what’s the most entertaining.
Still obsessed with food as fuel, I thought of my car. I wouldn’t dream of putting anything in my car that would damage it in any way. To take it a step closer, I went to the Internet and found this piece:
THE IMPORTANCE OF USING THE PROPER FUEL IN YOUR CAR

When filling up their cars’ gas tanks, people will oftentimes choose the cheapest type of fuel simply because it’s easier on the wallet. They all keep the car running, so what’s the big deal? Getting cheaper gas will be fine in the meantime, but it could be affecting your car in ways that you may not even notice until further down the road. There is an assortment of different types of fuel you’ll encounter at gas stations and understanding the importance of using the proper fuel will help you take better care of your vehicle.
So now what?
Think about what is available today. Eating whatever is around us, could tell us why many of our bodies aren’t doing so well. Should’nt we be taking a leaf out of our car’s maintenance manual, do a little research on body’s maintenance and look at food as fuel?
