Wow. Great. Amazing!
I saw this sign on our way home yesterday on the freeway. A photo of a lemonade bottle with the aforementioned slogan. At first I didn’t think anything of it, and just continued on my way. Then my mind did a double take. Lemonade, made with real lemons? We are supposed to be excited about this? Amazed and enthralled? Scuttle on out quick sticks buy a bottle and guzzle it down? The more I thought about it, the more I felt like it was a slogan from some futuristic show.
Over the past few years I have been changing and tweaking our diets ever so slowly. I’ve done a lot of reading, researching, trial and error. We have been vegetarians, but are no longer. We have eaten non-organic, organic, bio-dynamic. We have tried to grow our own food. We have bought from the big guys as well as locally. The changes we have made have been so gradual that I haven’t really noticed the difference. However we are now eating mainly organic foods, and have learnt a lot more about natural, whole foods.
I try to stick to foods that have been minimally processed, and have ingredients I can read on the label (if there happens to be one!)
Seeing this sign made me realise how accustomed we have become to eating foods that are manufactured, foods that are not real. My guess is the real lemons that make up this lemonade are many steps back in the production line. I would be interested to see.
But not interested enough to buy a bottle of it.
