Today, nearly half of the world’s population is considered obese: https://www.who.int/en/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/obesity-and-overweight

Associated pathologies are considered as causes of “preventable” diseases by responsible individuals, which has the effect of distorting the figures, for example by pointing out the risks associated with physical inactivity or tobacco (risks considered preventable) which are actually less polluting than pesticides and fertilizers in food. Is a 7-year-old child in insulin resistance responsible? Aren’t equity portfolio managers who desert a company that fails to achieve profitability over 3 months more responsible? The obesity epidemic began in the United States in the late 1970s and spread to the rest of the world, simultaneously with the use of synthetic fertilizers and the financialization of the economy promoted by the Reagan-Thatcher couple.

Before 1975, people did not eat light meals and their lifestyle certainly did not change so abruptly in such a short period of time. They ate richer, in greater quantities and there was almost no obesity and did not do that much sport. People are being pointed at for their life choices and food choices, but companies have been freed from their social responsibility.

Capital is so mobile that shareholders may have moved their funds long before a particular food scandal hits a producer. The responsibility of obese people is minimal compared to that of industry, but the power to act is in everyone’s hands: cooking oneself, promoting organic food, boycotting products from stock exchange companies, promoting the citizens’ initiative referendum, the independence of prosecutors and the abolition of high frequency trading.

Boissons maison – Chaudes ou froides et surtout moins sucrées

Oui, Oui, l’eau plate est meilleure, du robinet quand vous avez de la chance ou des bouteilles d’eau. Et si, si, le lait maternel, c’est mieux pour les bébés et pour les Mamans (sauf cas graves). (Recommandations de l’OMS en matière d’alimentation du nourrisson: https://www.who.int/nutrition/topics/infantfeeding_recommendation/fr  )

Mais quand on veut se faire plaisir… et surtout pour les boissons froides, les produits industriels rajoutent du sucre en masse. Sur les étiquettes qui sont chez moi, je vois 120g de sucre par litre pour le sirop bio. La même quantité pour des produits qui ne vont pas être dilués: toujours chez moi, le jus de fruit bio à près de 100g/l et le Coca-Cola à 128g/l. Ce sont ce que j’appelle des invitations formelles envoyées directement au diabète!

Donc, oui, vous pouvez vous faire plaisir de temps en temps avec une boisson sucrée si n’exagérez pas. La dose quotidienne de sucre recommandée est 25g/jour soit six cuillères à café.

Je vous propose ici trois recettes saines  qui peuvent être bues chaudes ou froides. C’est pour vous lancer! Après, vous inventerez vos propres recettes.

1) Infusion de cynorhodon (riche en vitamine C): Mettre un sachet d’infusion au cynorhodon dans la théière. Ajouter de l’eau frémissante et non bouillante. Déguster sans sucre ou sucrez avec du sirop de framboise ou de cassis.

2) Thé vert à la mente (bon pour la digestion): Utilisez de l’eau frémissante et non bouillante, que vous versez sur un sachet de/ du thé vert et de la menthe fraîche préalablement déposés dans la théière. Enlever le thé au bout de 2-3 minutes, laisser la menthe au moins 10 minutes. Boire tel quel ou y mélanger une cuillère de sucre complet bio ou du sirop au citron bio ou du sirop bio de fleur de sureau.

3) Thé vert au citron vert ou jaune (bon pour le foie): Découper le citron en morceaux. Déposer dans la théière le thé noir de votre choix (Earl Grey ou Russian Earl Grey en sachet pour moi). Utilisez de l’eau frémissante et non bouillante, que vous versez sur un sachet de thé. Retirer le thé au bout de 2-3 minutes; laisser le citron.  Bien y mélanger une cuillère de sucre roux complet bio (facultatif).

Vous pouvez aussi presser le citron directement au verre.

The same companies can’t get enough of our money; they poison us with their food (that we buy more and more because of the craving feeling it creates) and poison our democracy by corrupting politicians and scientists to make their poison legal. Thus craving for more and more money.
