i’m watching the today show while in the hospital waiting room and i see how children react to seeing plant-based ingredients added to foods like mac-n-cheese and meatballs. they like the foods until they learn there are healthy, natural ingredients in them. it’s so saddening that we live in a culture so off-base with nature that youth have no instinct to find delicious foods such as squash, zucchini, and oats appealing. these are the foods we were created to eat!! how have we come so far as to find them appalling? “and God said, ‘behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. you shall have them for food.'” (genesis 1:29 esv) of course the answer, as is the answer to any perversion of nature, is sin. it’s normal, but what makes this change even more sad than most is that it’s come to the point where people no longer realize that there was ever another way.
