The Rise of the “Organic Foodies”
Beginning during the 1980s and extending through today, rising obesity rates and the resulting chronic diseases have cast spotlights on the hidden dangers and costs associated with the conventional methods of growing and processing food. Hardly a day goes by without articles, studies and scientific findings coming out about the dangers of eating processed foods and ingesting preservatives, too much sugar, saturated fats, sodium, hormones, antibiotics, etc.”
While there is wide acceptance that whole, natural, healthier foods are...well, more healthier, perhaps no single organization has contributed more to America’s appreciation for the taste of healthier whole foods than Jim Mackey’s Whole Foods Market. With its numerous stores and significant investment in gourmet food preparation, Whole Foods Market brought healthier, organic food within reach of the American public. Celebrity endorsements from Kim Cattrell, Daryl Hannah, Christian Slater and Willie Nelson also helped the public appreciate organic. "Buying green" and “Going organic” have taken off during the last 10 years, and the organic market is expanding every day
The Everyday Challenge
Although they want to eat fresh, natural food, many people find it hard to eat healthy food in these busy times. They simply do not know how to buy or make healthy foods that taste good. Like the early health food chefs of the 1960s and 1970s, most people do not have the training or skills required to make gourmet health foods. For those that do have the skills, many don’t have the time in their busy schedules. Cooking and eating healthy requires menu planning, shopping, preparation and cooking, and cleaning. So even though many people want to eat a healthier diet, most people simply give up and grab a quick bite somewhere, eating restaurant food full of sodium and fat, or go to the store and purchase one of the store’s limited prepared food selections. As a result, despite the availability of healthy, organic ingredients in food markets around the country, people continue to struggle to eat healthy food even though they want to.
