Is the still shot above making you a little sick? It should. That pile of goo will soon be hotdogs…
Remember how I was talking about the fine print on food labels in my last blog post? And do you remember how I was saying that, regardless of what you believe to be a healthy diet, we can and should all unanimously agree that we all need to be responsible for knowing what is in our food and where it comes from? I recently came across a buzzfeed article entitled 14 Things You Really Don’t Want to Know About Your Groceries. It’s a list that will open your eyes, peak your curiosity, and churn your stomach all in one fell swoop. The article led me to the video I’ve embedded above, which I guarantee will make you never want to eat another hot dog again. And what’s surprising is that it’s narrated and scored with such cheer – like we’re watching and episode of Say Yes to the Dress.
Now I’m not usually one for scare tactics and I promise I’m not turning this blog into a rant-driven political forum. But, sometimes we just need to see what the hell is going on. I believe that what we put into our bodies is the only thing we really have control over when it comes to our health – it’s a sacred thing that we should be giving our full attention. New title for that buzz feed article: “14 Alarming Things You Absolutely Need to Know About Your Groceries”
And now it’s time for a weekend full of not eating hot dogs….
