OK, seriously, this is just to inform and encourage not to judge or make you feel bad.
We could all do better with making choices, right? (being informed is key)
Processed food = bad
Homemade food = good
Here are some articles (not too long in length) that you might find interesting.
Cancer cells love Fructose (talking about high fructose corn syrup - stay away)
and here (this one talks about hormone disrupting chemicals including pesticides found on most fruit and vegetables) - I say eat organic or grow your own but you do what you want.
and this one talks about processed meat.
Don't forget to eat your grains. Did you know that beans and rice (and other grains) make a complete protein?
Some good ideas I found -
check out a book called "Make-a-Mix"
When your making pancakes or waffles, etc., make a bunch and freeze them.
check ingredients of food before buying - the shorter list of ingredients the better. Go for simple.
If you can't pronounce it - no bueno. (that spanish for no good - I think)
When you find good food, make a list of them so you know you can buy them again without reading all the labels.
Produce as much food as you can on your own so you know exactly what is on and in your food.
Anyway, there's my 2 cents. Good luck!
If you have any other ideas please share.
