I live in a rural area in Kentucky. Farming is how a big part of the folks live around here. Most of your southern people way back when lived on fresh pork, beef and had their own chickens. They would render the pork fat to get their lard that they cooked with everyday. 3 times a day. The hogs they kill, they would salt cure them or sugar cure them and hang them in the smokehouse.
We all do this still today. There is nothing better than a fresh egg. And we make our own sausage. Me and my husband raise beef cattle , so at the end
of the year when we sell off the calves we keep one and fatten it up to kill and put in the freezer.
We cut our own hay for the cattle so we know what we have in our meat.
We raise the corn and have it ground at the local feed store.
First they say eggs was bad for you, then they say there good . Whatever.
Many of the old timers I call them have lived up in there nineties. They had eaten this high fat diet all there life. Smoked, and chewed tobacco all
there life. And still lived a long life, and worked daylight to dark.
But the food we consume today is so packed with preservatives and chemicals, this is why we are dying from the food we eat.
If everyone would have applied the biblical food law that God gave us, we would have been the healthiest people on earth. That is why he told us what
to eat and not to eat.
We the people, Live to EAT-- instead of eat to LIVE.
