Is That Even Food?
Tuesday, July 02, 2013
My family and I have been trying to eliminate processed foods from our diet. It started because recently I noticed that my oldest daughter is much more slender than the rest of our household. Hmmm, she eats almost all the same food as the rest of us, except for one deviation. She avoids artificial foods like the plague! Well, heck, works for me! So now, I make my almost all my own food from scratch...even burger buns! I will tell you that you will most certainly be satisfied with less, if it is REAL food.
This afternoon, after my workout, I dropped by the grocery store for veggies for dinner and something for my lunch. I saw these yummy looking chicken wraps and thought that sounded good...until I read the ingredients. It took me longer to read than it would've taken me to EAT! Wouldn't you think the list would be:
Chicken, Lettuce, Tortilla, Hot Sauce?
Nope! It was a list of chemicals and dyes and fillers, all for $7.00! I did what my daughter would have done....shook my head and put it back. I bought high fiber tortillas, Roasted chicken breast, (preservative/nitrate free), cheese and lettuce...for a lot less than 7 dollars and there are lunches yet to be made!
I'm full, happy and healthy....and it was real Food!
