I could really bore you with all the ways I eat real food...but I won't. Let's just say that I've been into real, natural, whole foods as a life style for my entire adult life (when it was possible--sometimes it just wasn't--won't bore you with that either!). It's a life-style for me. I do understand that it is not that way for a lot of people. My dear DIL was raised on junky processed and refined crap and she is piece by piece learning how to use real foods in her kitchen. It's not always easy. My mother, born in 1922 and now long passed away, was my first role model showing me the importance of whole foods. Her mother and grandmother showed her the way.

I always have a lot of good things in my fridge and basement pantry.
I just don't buy junk but I admit I'm not very good at planning my meals; just cook 'em as I see 'em!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
