Good snack food is important, and should be beneficial. It powers us between meals where needed. Leftovers, fruits, vegetables, snacks, and sweets are kept on hand for this. Beneficial snack food can help prevent overeating. The variety of tastes, textures, and nutrients of good snacks can uplift mood, and stabilize mental, emotional, and physical feelings. With ever-changing demands coming at us, good snack food aids productivity and helps maintain a tranquil countenance. EDEN snacks are pure food, chosen from the best there is to protect well-being and serenity.
The phrase ‘junk food’ originated as an assessment of commercial snacks. It has rightfully expanded into most food categories. Commercial snacks are full of refined sugar, bad fat, imitation sugar, harsh salt, toxic chemical color, flavor, texturizers, GMOs, and processing aids.
People shun snacks to avoid junk food and weight gain. Some people snack throughout the day and do not eat meals. Over time, both extremes result in frightful health issues. Choosing healthy snacks requires thought and planning. They are not routinely available. That’s a bit of a challenge, but it definitely improves quality of life.
Food scientists(?), paid by agribusiness and the snack food(?) industry encourage use of toxic chemical flavor and appearance coverups. They even promote them as ‘natural and organic.’ Chemicals are a cheap attempt to mimic nature that confuses the body’s nervous systems when taken. The chemicals do not nurture us. Their purpose is to deceive and maximize profit. They tend to cause biological chaos, overeating, excessive weight gain, bloating, and a host of often misdiagnosed health issues. Food imitation and adulteration are enormous contributors to obesity and mental health epidemics in ‘civilized societies’ of the world, especially the United States. Body and Mind are One.
U.S. regulators are world renowned for the degree to which they allow food imitation and adulteration profits at the expense of health and happiness. This is a societal problem that has been building for over 200 years.

America’s No. 1 Snack
Popcorn is America’s No. 1 favorite snack food. Americans consume 17 billion quarts of it per year, with 70% being consumed at home. Popcorn is whole grain nourishment with polyphenol antioxidants, phytonutrients, and fiber. At the 238th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society, Dr. Joe Vinson of the University of Pennsylvania said, “Early researchers thought fiber was the active ingredient for the benefits of whole grain … but recently polyphenols emerged as more important.” Dr. Vinson further reported, “We really were surprised by the level of polyphenols we found in popcorn. I guess it is because it’s not processed,” he said.
Most popcorn is not so healthy. Non-organic popcorn is on FDA’s Total Diet Study list of the top 10 foods most contaminated with pesticides and chemicals. The POP chemicals (persistent organic pollutants) are very toxic even when exposure is at extremely low levels. These chemicals mimic human and animal hormones and transfer through the placenta during pregnancy. POPs are linked to declining population of birds and animals. Authentic organic agriculture cleanses the environment and vitalizes soil. Much better tasting EDEN Popcorn is real organic, whole grain yellow popcorn with superior popping qualities for large, fluffy popped kernels that retain all the benefits nature intended. It is available in 20 oz. resealable packages and bulk.
The EDEN Snack Tote and EDEN Popcorn Bowl set make pleasing gifts. The handled snack tote is a durable organic cotton canvas filled with all 10 tasty EDEN Snacks in 4 oz resealable pouches. A EDEN Popcorn Bowl is always a hit. The red enameled metal bowl with POPCORN printed in white contains EDEN Popcorn, high-oleic organic EDEN Safflower Oil, EDEN Sea Salt, EDEN Garlic Gomasio sesame salt, and an EDEN Quiet Moon snack mix which is delicious in popcorn balls and caramel corn.

Wisdom is Love in Discerning
The intensely toxic-pesticide-herbicide-fungicide treadmill U.S. agriculture has pursued for over 80 years is killing the birds and bees, making people impotent, disease prone, and cancerous. Toxic farm chemicals kill the life in the soil, life that is essential to produce good food. Patented, genetically engineered food crops are made to survive, even tolerate, the toxins. As people are sickened by them, an inordinately huge percentage of the nation’s economy reaps profit from the suffering, death, and destruction.
Empty marketing promises of easy, almost hands-free agriculture, miraculous cures, and better living have delivered little more than huge profit, reduced quality of life, poor taste, and depleted nutrition of food, along with untold misery and suffering.
Nutritionally diminished, bland tasting, toxin laced food is further adulterated when more toxins are added in attempts to replace the lost appeal of good taste and appearance that they once had; more chemicals to hide the result of a toxic treadmill that produces such unappealing food. A harmful chemical feast is what we are served, government sanctioned, marketed, and encouraged, just short of mandated. Misinformed and misguided society participates in this destruction of life for profit, puzzled at the ruination that abounds.
People who seek alternatives to pharmaceuticals, surgery, and invasive tests are deemed eccentric, anti-social, even a threat to others. Diets of pure whole grain, local vegetables, balanced and moderate, are a cleansing alternative. Wisdom is Love in Discerning.
