It's kind of funny how the taste buds bounce back. Have been cutting down on processed stuff for a while then decided to have a lean cuisine (pizza)--wow, it was *really* sweet and kind of metallic tasting. Not sure if it was just a *bad* pizza or if my buds have gotten used to the non-processed stuff already. Clean eating is the way to go!

Depends on what the food is, but I can taste the rancid fat in the food and I tend to get a little indigestion or what I call "bad oil burps" for me. Its not on all processed food, but some foods now just make me get a sick feeling just thinking of that bad oil food. Boxed, add water only, pancake mix gives me serious "I am in so much pain that I can't move" indigestion!

Yes. Growing up Mom always grew her own veggies. We did grow some for the past 4-5 years. This year's was not as good. But yes it tastes so fresh and natural. You wonder what have you been eating all along.
Changing my life one day at a time from the inside out. Remembering the basics, to set goals, plan,implement, then revise. The journey will be hard and easy but remember to HAVE FUN!!!
Pam - your comment about the grocery store cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce was so spot on for me. Yesterday I brought home all three from my CSA (Consumer Supported Agriculture). The family - that is usually not big on veggies - all went back for seconds on their salad saying that the salad tasted great! It really did taste so much better than the grocery store produce!

I have also given up most processed foods. My husband and I gave up soft drinks about 15 years ago, I have maybe had one or two since then. I do not miss all the chemicals and do not crave them either.
I eat very few processed foods, but every now and then I may have a treat. I usually enjoy dark chocolate covered graham crackers from Whole Foods, but they have not been selling them for some time now (or I can not find them in the store any longer). Well, I was shopping at Giant and I saw that Keebler had an individual container of mini chocolate covered graham crackers, I thought - "what the heck - these would be fine". Well.....I got home a tried one and I swear I could taste the chemicals in the cookie. I have no desire to finish the little package. Has this happened to any of you?? It is a good thing, yes, I really have no taste/desire for processed foods any longer.
