Once upon a time, humankind roamed the earth as hunter-gatherers, driven by the biological need to find food that tasted good, provided sustenance, and helped them survive. With time, society became more complex, and the simplicity of nourishing ourselves was obscured by the tangled web of culinary norms, diet dogma, and the rise of influential food gurus.
Food writers, celebrity chefs, and diet charlatans have bamboozled us into convoluted living and made eating way more complicated than it needs to be. Multi-course meals with "entrees", "appetizers", "desserts" and other buzzwords are mere shams used to sell recipes, meal plans, junk products, viewerships, and courses at restaurants. Like the famous story of the emperor's new clothes, we have been led astray by the illusion that eating must be a complex, ritualistic experience.
Let us look at the truth behind sweet foods that are unjustly downgraded to mere "treats" or "desserts": sweetness is not the enemy, and, considering the advent of non-nutritive sweeteners, it doesn't always equate to sugar either. Sugar is merely a caloric manifestation of sweetness! Our bodies are hardwired to seek out sweet flavors, as they signal the presence of life, symbiotic relationships, and growth. Imagine a world where we celebrate sweetness as a cornerstone of nourishment, rather than demonizing it as a "treat" or "dessert". This change in perspective has the potential to revolutionize how we approach food and our overall well-being.
Meanwhile, the culinary world has a dark side, where fancy buzzwords like "artisanal" and "classic" are used to sell bitter, bland, and revolting foods. At the same time, the envious diet gurus and celebrity chefs peddle overpriced ingredients and supplements, often in collusion with anti-scientific wellness products like Goop. The result? A cult-like mentality that preys on our insecurities and perpetuates a cycle of guilt and confusion.
It's time to break free from this outdated way of thinking and embrace our innate desire for sweetness. Just like the story of Prometheus, who defied the gods to bring fire to humanity, we need a sweet revolution that challenges the status quo and reclaims our right to enjoy food that aligns with our biological needs.
Throughout history, the allure of sweetness has been a powerful force. From the hunter-gatherer days, through the monarchal feudal ages, the golden age of voyages, and the industrial age, the sweetness was a rare and coveted commodity. It made sense to place sweet foods as a celebratory post-meal treat in those times, but this was based on social norms and symbolism, not on our biological understanding of the human body.
So, how can we untangle ourselves from this web of confusion and return to a more authentic, biologically-driven approach to eating? The answer lies in embracing our innate desire for sweetness and focusing on nutrition engineering that caters to our biological needs. By putting sweet taste perception at the center of how we find and consume food, we can create a healthier, happier society that thrives on quality nourishment.
