Eat Real Food, NOT Faux Food

Sunday, December 30, 2012      7 comments

I was totally unaware that I was eating faux food. That "packaged processed" was what I thought was normal. Ah the marketing hype that I believed. They just want my money... not what is good for me. So buying real food may cost a bit more but no... Read more
