Y'all know I'm trying to eat clean/real foods, as close to what mother nature intended as possible, right now. Mostly fruits, veggies, meats, etc. And all organic. No processed/packaged foods! Bad, bad, bad.
Well, my friend and co-worker has been on this transition to eat raw/clean/real foods for awhile now. She found this article and I thought it was crazy interesting about how you can think somethings 'good' for you, when really it's not. Made me think twice about how foods can still be processed even though it might be 'natural' or 'organic'. 'Raw' apparently is the word of the day.
And if you search on that sight it provides some other interesting articles about traditional food.
Another kinda shocking thing......there are many people out there that are starting to realize that the low fat/non-fat approach to eating is also hurting us in the long run. Anything low fat has been processed beyond belief! When in fact eating whole raw foods like whole raw milk, butter, cheese, etc is better for you than all that processed junk you're putting in your mouth now, just to lose weight. Inuit Indians in Alaska mainly survived on an almost solid diet of fish/animal fat. Yes, I said FAT! And they survived w/o heart disease, diabetes, being obese, etc. I don't know where I heard that or read that, but I know I did. I tried to search more info, but couldn't find it. You'll just have to take my word for it.
Anywoozle, I know I'm never going to be the perfect clean eater, or completely give up processed foods.....Helllllooooo, I love BEERS......but I know that some changes just might help me later in life, or possibly help my kids, when we start having them. Who knows. I think my quest for being super duper stick skinny (exaggeration btw) isn't as appealing now that if I find out in 50 years my eating a lot of processed foods has caused my, or God forbid, my children's health to be hurt (i.e. cancer, diabetes (again, my husband has for 'no' reason), infertility, heart disease, mental illness, etc.).
Just something to think about.
That is all.
