Week 38 - It's Greek to Me

Processed and packaged foods rely heavily on additives in order to prolong their shelf life and enhance their appearance and flavor. These additives include fillers, preservatives, and other ingredients that frankly you don't want in your diet. Most of these additives are man-made chemicals that are not natural for us to ingest, and as a result they can be deterimental to our health. Some of the worst offenders have been linked to cancer, heart disease, and lung and kidney disease, among other health issues.

The Change

Avoid eating foods that contain additives.

Thank you.

Thank you. I get a bit bewildered by this. We eat as fresh as we can but we do have things that I wonder what's in them. Gosh this could be taxing on the old grey matter!

Ah, I have found everyone again. I try to cook mostly from scratch, so think this is not too bad.

The previous week's challenge, with the nice weather we have spent a lot of the days at the beach or at the park. The challenge is to manage it in the not so nice weather! I have been to the park with the dcs this afternoon and spent some time in the nice wooded area.

That's good. I feel like homemade stuff is an ongoing theme with this book, and rightly so.

Here is the next change

My lesson here. Never Google hot dogs confused

Oh, really? Ok, I'm glad to be a vegetarian.

I must admit I love Costco muffins but they last way too long. It's unnerving.
