I've started making my own bread! I love it: not only the taste of "real" bread with no preservatives, but the fun of actually being in the kitchen, participating in this activity that's been a part of humanity for thousands and thousands of years... I just enjoy it. :) And it's such a feeling of accomplishment when you go in to find the dough's risen!
Part of my SparkPeople journey has been learning to eat "real" food instead of processed food. Now, I do still eat some; I will admit to having frozen pizza in my freezer and Rice a Roni in my cupboard, but since SparkPeople is about moderation, I'm not honestly too fussed about it. However, I've been enjoying learning how to prepare, and enjoy, real food: fresh produce, fresh (or flash-frozen) meat, and beans & lentils. I'm discovering that I'm spending more and more time around the edges of the grocery store--produce, dairy, deli, and meat--and less and less time in the actual aisles. It's helped me lose 50 pounds so far, so no arguments there! :D
In the vein of "real food," a friend of mine on Facebook found this and linked to it. I thought it was so funny I had to pass it along!
I'd love to see your feedback on the link--let me know what you think!
