Health food stores have been around for a long time, at least for fifty years that I can remember. Consumer demand has steady empowered the health food and supplement industry to spiral upward. When I was a teenager in the 1960s, health food stores consisted of mainly vitamin shops. Now health food stores are full service department food stores with rows of organic products, meats and seafood in addition to their vitamin selections.
We love Applegate Hot Dogs. They are real
hot dogs made with good cuts of organic beef
The old ideas of health foods tasting bland and of cardboard have dropped out of existence. Thank goodness the misnomer that if things are "good for you," they must taste bad has been replaced. Now there are many fully organic products allowing tasty GMO-free, pesticide free foods to be included in healthy diets.
Remember that most corn and wheat are genetically modified, the components of which do not metabolize properly and then accumulate in the kidneys and liver. Be sure, therefore, that your breads, cookies, cakes and hot dog rolls are organic, which also means they cannot contain GMO ingredients.
It is possible to have organic hot dogs that
actually taste MUCH BETTER than the ones most
of us had as children.
As your body gets healthier and rids itself of toxic poisons, you will eventually want to be more and more careful that your organic foods are really organic and by reputable companies. When first starting to get well, however, don't try to make massive changes all at once. Odds are, the foods labeled organic are still better than what you have been eating everyday in the processed and restaurant food world.
Organic condiments insure a
satisfying hot dog lunch.
Once you really, REALLY get on the path to wellness, you will be making your own condiments from recipes in Nourishing Traditions, the back to basic health recipe book by Sally Fallon of the Weston A. Price Foundation. The best condiments are fermented like they used to be and provide natural probiotics for a healthy gut and digestion. But, until then, use organic products that will get you on your way.
Boy, I hope these look good to you. I thought they
looked good when I took the photo, but tonight, maybe
I'm just tired...I think I could have made them a
little more appealing. They tasted GREAT, though!
...lights, camera, ACTION!
