Food Racism

Colorful food_pw.JPGWhy do we subsidize white foods, but not foods of color? Are we food racists? Once again the archives of the Food Chain have come up gold with Show #552: Foods of Color. Michael Olson never finishes his analogy, but I couldn’t help myself. White foods are those refined über-processed food-like substances composed mainly of corn.

Foods of color are the blessed variety of plants that God intended for us to eat. How many fruits or vegetables can you think of that are purple? Orange? Red? Yellow? Green? For some people thinking of foods this color that are not candy or cereal is really hard. So c’mon people… don’t discriminate! Down with food racism! Power to the Plants!
