I try to home cook as much as possible, but life doesn't always allow for it. Still I try to fresh as much as possible.

No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everybody on the couch.

I do eat some processed foods, actually about 50% and I know that is not good, but I will start paying more attention to how many ingredients are in it and if I have problems pronouncing them a sure hint huh? Thanks Kelly, an eye opener, now to follow through and change my habits

Good article! Thanks! Fortunately I have kept most processed foods out of my kitchen for years...though I do cheat from time to time! Living near local farm stands is a big help!! I like the saying, “If you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it!” Another good one is “If you can’t stand watching it being produced, you shouldn’t be eating it.”

What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

This was the best investment I made in my health. Not easy to cook from scratch all the time esp when working, but it means control over things like trans fats etc. Look for local organic veg box schemes too. thank you for this reminder. :)

I know it's unrealistice in our hectic lifestyles to completely eliminate processed foods but let's try to eat at least one serving less of processed foods. Baby steps.

Below is a link to an article from the 100 Days Of Real Food website with eight tips to eating less processed foods. Let me know if the link does not work for you and I will email you the tips.

Basically eat "closer to a product of nature than a product of industry". Look for foods with less than five ingrediants when possible.

What strategies do you use to eat less processed foods? I have been getting in the habit of replacing chips for cut up veggies or fruit with my sandwiches as often as possible.
