I first came across the book Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us by Michael Moss on a blog I follow called What Would John Mack Eat? This New York Times Best Seller that was published about a year ago details the food process that food giants implement to “hide” unhealthy, cheap, and addicting ingredients to get consumers hooked on their processed foods. Ironically, those three ingredients are salt, sugar, and fat, as hinted in the name of the book.
I am an advocate of trying to avoid processed foods as much as possible, and this book just reinforced my opinion. I don’t want to give away the entire book, but it is a huge eye opener on the amount of manipulation and food engineering that goes on in the food industry. You can definitely tell that Michael Moss did a trove of research, investigation, and interviews with those individuals from food giants behind some of this food fabrication. I would highly suggest this book. It was an interesting and informative read, definitely check it out! Educate yo selves, BITCHES!
Promise I’ll get back to recipes this week =)
