This is the 2nd full length broadcast titled Vintage Talk Radio – episode 03 – You are what you eat!
After the new audio sign-in, and program changes are addressed Bisou talks to us about Food, as always in terms of the vintage lifestyle. Specifically, how our food attitudes have changed how we produce and what we eat through the last 100 years.
Food was once linked directly to socialization; today social dinner’s are rare occasions. Even sitting around the dinner table, eating the same meal in the average household has become an inconvenience for many because of individual priorities, schedules and tastes. Vintage lifestylers prioritizes this family time, taking the opportunity to share with household members more than a healthy home cooked meal. They get to know what is important to each other, while learning proper dining etiquette and preserving the knowledge of food preparation and serving.
The broadcast addresses how plastic has infiltrated our food cycle. Bisou discusses how removing the plastic component from food sources, will not only reduce waste but appetite. Glass, cotton, metal (aluminum foil) and paper (waxed paper too) serve as substitutes for plastic packaging. All much as is possible, food is purchased direct from the (organic) farm, foraged or is home grown.
The industrialization of farming and prepackaged foods, has produced sick animals and sterile land. Better farming processes exist, and the challenge is in part being taken up by homesteaders. Perm-culture, which uses a three dimensional multiple season production cycle and natural fertilizers ensure the best overall production, least petrol-chemical dependance and most healthy, nutritionally rich and tasty food products, is a workable option for everyone having a yard around their home.
The result of these changes in food attitudes and production cycles have given rise to a weight problem in society. Although one specific cause cannot be attributed to expanding waistlines, the solution is found in following the vintage lifestyle, and taking full responsibility for what we feed ourselves. By cooking our own foods, buying organic and taking our time to enjoy a meal together, we can make positive changes in both or physical and mental health.
