Good article. Makes one think, I do not think that forget anything with a label because fruits and some vegetables are expensive at certain times of the year and canned green beans are OK as far as I am concerned.

Interesting article. It made me realize just how much junk is in our food. That is the reason why I only buy from the outer perimeter of the grocery store. This is just one of the reasons for me to change the way I eat. Thanks for sharing.

nicely written
it made me laugh, it made me cry
and it scared me
when it said "Today there are not even enough fruits and vegetables in this country to allow all Americans to follow the government guidelines to eat 5 to 9 servings a day"

Great minds think alike - I signed up for them too!

I am trying to eat smarter - that means more FRESH foods - veggie, fruits, and unprocessed foods. And as you mentioned, cooking more from scratch and not eating out as much. I want to be around for a long time yet, and that means making sure I am not poisoning myself with nutritionally dead foods. I am so glad I found this team.

JINLYNN, this is a great article. I truly believe in Dr. Hyman's findings. Eating natural is the way to go. We need to go back to basics and eat whole and unprocessed foods. That means cooking and eating in more.

Thanks for sharing. I signed up for his newsletters.

I like that the mediterranean way of eating is the emphasis on whole, unprocessed foods. So when I found this link on another team page I wanted to share it with you.
