Before that, the color green in packaging tested poorly; customers felt "green" was the color of bad, moldy, rotten food. They wouldn't buy green colored packages. Frozen vegetables (the green giant) were about the only exception.
Now, "mold" colored packages are in every aisle, because we've been trained to think that will mean "all natural" or some other healthy buzzword.
Rule 2: The only person in the grocery store truly interested in your wellbeing is you.
Orange energy, and the Niyamas, are your ideal partners for this part of your life's work. Our relationship with food is, for most people, a big part of the overall ability to be happy and whole. We are allowed to explore our desires, but we are responsible for managing them. When we work the 2nd limb, personal responsibility is the bottom line, which is why we slow down, study ourselves, perform the practices with discipline and contentment and commitment.
The ancients didn't have 300,000 food choices. They were choosing the most alive and nutritious foods from a small number of foods. A modern yogi is required to be much more rigorous, but the same tools apply. Slow down, study your desires, create your eating life with discipline and contentment and commitment.
The time I took to understand and mindfully choose my food ethics is freedom.
Have a great weekend everyone!
