I know I've said this a gazillion times, but we eat very little processed food. For one, there's the gluten issue for Jas. For me, I just don't have much desire or tolerance for it anymore. As I've said, I eat protein first- usually a food such as nuts, or some sort of meat, sometimes a bit of yogurt, etc. I try to get in some vegetables, too, and that's about all I eat. I get most of my food and almost all of my nutrients, for now, through protein shakes and special vitamin supplements. Part of it is because food just doesn't sound good to me, and I keep cooking tasty recipes for my husband and other people, but only eat little bits of it.
I cook almost exclusively from scratch- probably 95% of stuff, save for
things like Tamari sauce that I don't make myself, or Pamela's gluten free mixes (I use the bread mix and the pancake/baking mix most frequently- I linked to them on the side!)- and though I already knew a lot about how bad processed foods are, I'm more glad than ever that we've already completely changed the way we eat in our family!
After watching Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution I am increasingly depressed at the state of American food. I love Jamie Oliver, and this is a great show.
Google "jamie oliver pink slime" and try not to throw up in your mouth. I'll never eat another chicken nugget or chicken patty again. Ugh.
Ok, must sleep now! I have a great recipe to share, and some other lovely things rumbling around my head for later this week.
