Man Turn On De Stove!

Posted by Rosemary Parkinson on BU blog – Is Junk Food Really Cheaper? – reposted because of its relevance

Have just returned from The Bahamas where I delivered a presentation on the future of culinary tourism…so I was very pleased to see all the above comments re food except for alien’s own. Sir or Madam – this is a blog about food not about sexual food but real food, the kind one puts into one’s stomach through the mouth – how black and white sex gets into here is beyond me…but I guess some minds just are able to turn everything into a barrage against whites because of historical facts whether they were good, bad or ugly (and they were all but it is past and these sexual unions have produced a wonderful colourful people of all hues, some who eat healthy food and others that open their mouths and immediately show what their stomachs are filled with so that the brain is never in gear with today’s life but seems to have been left to fry in the dirty oil of history. Whilst we should not forget, we should be happy we are now gorgeous Caribbean people with great soul food, and turn our thoughts positively about that! To each his own sadness I guess.)

Yes! Fast Food is not cheap. Yes! Fast food is unhealthy. This cry has been going out now for a very long time. But the fast food business is booming and will continue to do so because we are a lazy lot. And yes! what we do not realize is that Fast Food is also ‘addictive’. And yes! Fast Food can cause us to spend more with the doctor (they are happy…has anyone seen a poor doctor ’bout hey?).

In Barbados we love to go KFC to be seen standing in line for hours, the aroma of old oil in deep fryers covering our senses and enveloping our bodies and later stomachs in a film of grease coming from chickens whose feed is questionable and whose potato chips come from the US and GMO potato. The bright plastic sign outside and on each package with a Colonel just smiling down on us with that grin that says “come on in and mekk us rich at whatever cost to your health!” TGI Fridays with their US food and drinks that are plastic enough to build cars not far behind with Chefette at least playing a part with a salad bar although half of it consists of canned produce (why I ask?) that few visit because the excitement is listening to children screaming as they fly down colourful shoots balancing a burger, hot dog and pizza in their mouths. What deliciousness. A portion of hummus and a pita bread from upstairs Lanterns would be a much bettah deal…but children would have to sit down with their parents and eat properly…lawd what a catastrophic thought.

Home cooking does not have to be tedious and long (we have always overcooked our foods in the Caribbean) and it certainly costs less than any fast food joint whether healthy or not. Shopping at Cheapside Market on a Saturday morning is not only exciting, invigorating but spreads the money where it should be spread – with those who toil the lands in extreme conditions so that we can enjoy a healthy lifestyle – but can you imagine taking the children there for them to see what a real sweet potato looks like? Or how colourful a real tomato is? I can hear the screaming from here…I want McDonalds, I want McDonalds…thank God we threw them out but on the other hand, I wonder why? We still crowd the fast food joints anyhow! So it could not have been because of that! Poor Mr. Mac…he came to fight against Chefette.

Returning home after three weeks away, with no real food in the house…I managed to prepare myself a meal in minutes – opened a can of corned beef, a can of baked beans and threw it into some coconut oil with several garlic cloves and some pepper sauce & seasonings I made before I left. Added Basmati Rice on the side and a nice little spoonful of Mango Chutney made right here in Buhbayduss. Okay…real healthy it was not but it took less than 15 minutes to cook, and it was good enough for a dinner and a breakfast until I get to my hucksters and restock. The cost was little as I know where to shop and always keep a small stock of canned goods for bad weather…and none of it came from the US – I read my labels – made in the Caribbean helps the money to stay ‘home’. I could have gone to a Fast Food but I make the sign of the cross whenever I pass those places so that was definitely not an option. This fifteen minutes allowed me to also unpack whilst the rice was cooking…wasting time is not in my agenda. When my larder is full again, I can cook healthy, delicious meals in very little time…always in the 15 minute ball park and the price is usually quarter of what I would pay at any fast food counter. But for those who hate cooking, why not eat sensibly with the van ladies then (or even the little restaurants dotted around the island although I wish they would stop serving food in those poisonous containers and also putting them into the microwave! I insist mine nevah goes into the latter)…instead of a huge portion, a small one does the trick – meat, a carb, veggies and salad…

We are what we eat. And our children should be learning this in primary school. PRI9MARY SCHOOL IS WHAT I SAID. MINISTER OF EDUCATION I WOULD BE PLEASED TO GIVE A LITTLE TALK FOR FREE ON THIS – CALL MUH!! Our tiny little tots should be dictating to their parents (who are immobilized brainwise by all the toxins in Fast Food) that Fast Food is not what they want, that it will kill Mum and Dad and leave them as orphans! If harsh education is what it takes so be it.

Meanwhile it is good to see the comments and great input into this very problematic scourge that has hit the inner core of our island lives…we were once healthy…we can see that in the generation that are living to be 100. A friend of mine wondered if she wanted to live that long. I said eat healthy now so there is no health expense or worries… and when you reach around 80/85 and feel that looking in the mirror and using Bengays Balsam as a moisturizer is not an option for ya…then line up at KFC ’till you dead – it won’t take long! Bless.

    Not many will enjoy reading this piece because fast food has become an integral part of our lifestyle. Forget out of control NCDs, it taste good and it convenient.

  • @David…you may see the importance of our stupidity and insist on putting up my opinions…I may also see the importance of our stupidity and voice my opinion on it. My holiday in Jamaica after Bahamas gave me one insight. Stressing about this stupidity is not doing me any good. From now on I am a citizen of this world, only here for a short time, only here to occupy the space I do. I will not keep quiet on food issues but I am not stressing when no one pays attention. Anyone who wants to poison their bodies can go right ahead…perhaps Fast Foods serves its purpose – keeps the population down. We love America so much it seems, we will die for it. So be it.

    Another thought….My understanding is that we are in trouble economically…hmmm…if the extent of our troubles is as bad as was intimated to me…we will soon not have any money to even pay our food bill. Do you know how much foreign exchange left this island purchasing poisonous food and even worse Monsanto products? Well, if not, perhaps a look at the figures will show us the waste! What might we have done with all of that money if it had stayed here eh? Well…given the state of our governments, perhaps not much. Waste is our middle name…from the top to the bottom. And when there is no more money in the coffers to pay out to the US, we will eat grass for salad, concrete steaks with RoundUp sauce and hope to die!

    Let it be David. We are the only reason behind our bad health and our imminent demise….so be it.

    I think twenty years talking about the wonders of our traditional cuisine, twenty years talking about the importance of organic agriculture, twenty years talking about unity within the islands and being self-sufficient in food, twenty years screaming about the importance of culinary tourism only to see high end restaurants still importing their every little mouthful and feeling proud to serve ‘overseas’ food, twenty years of crying over our people dying because of their consumption of poisons is enough already, twenty years of pointing at Fast Food outlets and their crazy idea that what they do is okay is enough already.

    I am not done. I will not be shut up. However, I am not stressing as I did before… I am leaving it all mostly up to the individuals who have heard me to decide for themselves to live or to die early, to watch their children born with allergies and bodies that cannot sustain life for long, their grandchildren opening their eyes for the first time laden with congenital heart and other disease – some dying before given a chance to see their beautiful island and to know what it feels like to have loving parents OR to try and live a healthy life so the above does not happen.

    I am not here to save our island. I was exhausted when I went on holiday, and I ent getting meself into that situation ever again! Life is too short, sweetie…far too short. Let de lovers of U.S. GMO foods, of U.S. Fast Food Outlets and Monsanto poisons…go right ahead. I have a book to write…perhaps those few who survive in the future can at least look through its pages and just as we read about history, at least see what food used to look like in the lives of their great-great grandparents.

    Understand your frustration. If you share your thoughts let those who want to make the attitudinal change do so; you would have done your part. On another note, the system will fight against the attitudinal change because from an economic perspective the distributive and retail sectors employ people. Don’t figure! Then again a look at the politicos and their bellies tell you where their priorities lie.

    Rosemary, you right. Politicians and economists the world over give the impression they are working frantically to get the economic growth merry-go-round restarted, expecting that if only they could spray enough WD40 on the rusted out, seized up parts everything will be put to rights and it will start turning for them and for us just like it did before it seized up and ground to a halt. Might be harder to get the old clunker turning again than many of us realize.

Another thing children don’t have money unless their parents give them so the fast food is only accessible if the parents allow it.

    @IslandGal you are right, we do need to educate and educate at Primary Level. By secondary level it is already too late.

    As I have mentioned before just as children are now screaming at their parents to stop smoking…we need them to shout at their parents that they do not want fast foods ’cause they do not want to become orphans. Posters like: SHOCK YOUR PARENTS – TELL ‘EM NO KILLER FAST FOODS could possibly help! A Fast Food prepared with health in mind is a good thing. Unfortunately the US fast foods are not a model to follow.

    If you have not watched the movie posted above in 12 parts…long but so informative…please do so. These are the kinds of shows that children should be watching in Home Economics (do they still have those classes?). I find it rather shocking that we have children cooking up a storm at competition level and using products that are not exactly healthy because the sponsors want them advertised. Just as we stopped the advertising of cigarettes…perhaps we should stop the killer advertisements that tell you that to buy a bucket of KFC for the weekend is a healthy meal for parents and kids! Some kind of legislation should be in place as to what you are allowed to place on national TV…perhaps that is another answer. Of course, we have cable and that cannot be stopped as most of the channels are US ones. But at least we could start at home with all media.

    If we want our health bill to drop, if we want to curtail the quantity of deaths because of cancers, diabetes, heart disease etc. etc., if we want to reduce the high level of amputations in this country….something must be done. And food, believe it or not, is at the bottom of all the above, and more!

The FDA controls all the canned goods – what do we have in just about everything canned (even packaged stuff and that includes cereals) from the US? We have corn syrup in everything and corn syrup that comes from GMO corn – that in itself has been directly associated with obesity in the US (and we have them here too!). Also…have you ever read the labels on food items from the US…have you seen how many chemicals inside that one cannot even pronounce…I wrote one down the other day and when I looked it up it was “rocket fuel”….so please ac I do beg you…yes! we do need controls but please, please do not let’s look at the FDA for help.

So Most of the problem is not with the FDA but with those countries that do not have strict guidelines . Foods that are harvested in other countries are sold in the Western World and the FDA has no jurisdiction or in any way can regulate them.

  • @ac…long winded or not…facts are facts and the FDA are NOT a good role model, believe it or not. By the way it is nonsense that the only recalls have been outsourced items. I was not even talking outsourced…I was talking American goods. And it is very foolish to say that the consumer has the right to decide whether they want to eat GMO foods or not. The only right we will soon have is not to eat period, since GMO foods are all around us..and growing in number….with no packing or information to tell us so in order to have a choice. If I were you I would sit down quietly and watch the video above that David so kindly posted above for me. I know 12 parts might be difficult to get through…too much corn syrup/pesticides/insecticides and GMO foods in we bodies have caused inability to (a) remain quiet and (b) concentrate on the lessons to be learned. But still try and perhaps your eyes will be opened.

    I have nothing against the US…have many friends who live there…but what is being done to the foods that we so readily import and consume, foods that are made in the US, foods that are approved by your beloved FDA, that are downright poisoning our people cannot be ignored. Organic is the way to go, of course. But are our people really knowing this? I am not interested in whether America has a choice or not. I do not even care what they eat (although I did notice in New York the fantastic array of OUR foods, in their supermarkets – we (the Caribbean) ship our Grade A up there, and in return we get their crappy seconds! And that upsets me, oh! yes! it does.

    It is us who seem to believe that everything produced in the land of the free is good and healthy and natural. So you go on. Continue to believe in the greatness of the almighty FDA who on occasion might do one good thing to save people as a smoke screen for all the ill they do on the other side.

    And yes! products from other countries also need regulating. They are not perfect. But where does the majority of our imports come from? USA FDA approved!

    We as a responsible and educated country need to have our own regulatory body as I said above. We as a responsible and educated country need to look carefully at what we are importing, we need to curtail most of those imports from the US (and other countries that sell poison). We as a responsible and educated country must NOT allow Monsanto to sell their GMO seeds here. We as a responsible and educated country should also realize that within this global economy we seem to have become the dumping yard of poison. We as a responsible and educated country must give our people choices but healthy, organic choices…most of which should be grown here and/or processed here, and if they are imported, let them come from organic sources. Organic agriculture would be a start if we are to be deemed responsible and educated people. But then…..????

    If we do not do something about my last paragraph we shall continue to pay the undertaker heavily to bury our children, sisters and brothers. In my age group, our parents are living long ’cause they were not subjected to all the crap we are eating today. That alone should be a wake up call. A call to educate our people at primary level about the ills of unhealthy habits. We do not need the FDA to tell us that…but we do need our Ministry of Education to begin the ball rolling!
