Stop the madness! Eating all the processed junk isn't good for you. If you're relying on a box to tell you there are no trans fats, then you're shopping in the store's wrong section. Shop the perimeter of your grocery store. (Produce/Meats/Cold) If you can't buy fresh, then buy fresh frozen. :)
Buy organic when you can! Support your local farmers and farm stands. Even if they aren't organic, your local farmer will tend to use less chemicals and pesticides.

...when it comes to meals, that is. I eat a lot of frozen meals for breakfast and lunch during the week (like Weight Watchers and Lean Cuisine meals). It takes the guess work out of what I'll eat, their fairly healthy and they're always handy, so "no time to cook" is not an excuse. (If you're watching your sodium, try some Healthy Choice meals.) I eat fresh fruits for healthy snacks and I cook my dinners and weekend meals (and try to get in the veggies!).
I am loving those fruit cups I have found at Walmart & Dillon's. They're in the fresh produce section ~ blueberries, pineapple, mixed fruit & more. I grab one & can drink the juice & fruit while driving to work. Add a protein bar & you're good to go until lunch time. Plus, they're only 70 - 100 calories! 9
