Our food will make you 7% smarter. And nicer.
Something about healthy food, which kind of makes me laugh, is that there are quotes all over the place. Maybe they think that if you’re thoughtful enough to not be eating foods that hurt the environment, you’re a pretty thoughtful person, and they want to encourage that. I really don’t know. The brand names are exciting, and they put quotes on things.
Here is a quote from my box of wholesome, whole-wheat, vegetarian brownies:
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” - Eleanor Roosevelt
And another one from my vegan breakfast cereal (which, by the way, is delicious):
“In the end, we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught.” - Baba Dioum, Senegalese conservationist
And the fun doesn’t stop there. Brownies have that quote, but the chocolate chip cookie box has a different one. And Wild Berry Crisp has Baba’s quote, but the Mango cereal has a totally different quote. And these are the only two I have on hand to blog about. Every day, all I have to do is eat, and I nourish my body AND mind. (Psh. And some people think they’re lucky to have word searches on the back of their cereal…)
