Hit the Nail on the Head...

I'm listening to Dishing up Nutrition, a local radio nutrition program sponsored by Nutritional Weight and Wellness, and they just made a statement that is just duh.

Why is eating real food considered extreme?

I know most of my family and friends think we're extreme with our food choices. But why?? Why is not eating out of a box or jar, etc. extreme? It's real food. Unadulterated food. Check the ingredients on your packages and look at all the fillers, flavors and hydrogenated fats you are eating. It contributes to major health problems and AGING. We started eating REAL food 3 years ago and I no longer have to use lotion or conditioner because my body produces enough natural oils because I eat FAT, heaven forbid. But REAL fat. Butter, cream, olive oil, nuts, avocados, coconut oil. We drink unprocessed milk and make our own ice cream. Whole milk yogurt. Not a lot of sugar. Chicken with the skin. Red meat. I hate it when I'm made out to be a bad mother because I refuse to feed my children excess junk. If anything you'd think it would be that I'm an excellent mother because I CARE about the HEALTH of my children.

Off my soapbox now.
