Was Grandpa Right? Did Food Taste Better In The Past?

grandpa While we know Grandpa did not walk to school uphill, both ways, without shoes in the snow, he may have been right that certain things were better “back in the day”. According to a 2004 study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, food grown today has lower levels of vitamins & nutrients than food grown in the 1950’s. Today large corporations have replaced small farmers as the primary source for fruits and vegetables. Farming today is focused on producing fruits and vegetables that look good on the supermarket shelves, transport well, and last as long as possible before spoiling. The result is that food today is less nutritious and does not taste as good as it once did.

So What Do We Do?
1. Buy fresh, organic (when available and cost effective), locally grown produce.
2. Support farmers markets
3. Visit local health food stores
4. Shop at natural foods stores
5. Try a restaurant that focuses on healthy cuisine

*Overall eat a diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables, while avoiding processed foods & sugary snacks*
