How is it that we know these things happen to our food, yet we consume these products anyway? Maybe one of the biggest problems is that the good stuff is not always easily available- the bad stuff is. So we grab the bad stuff because it takes less time and we don’t have to think about it.

“At least 90 percent of the sugar beet crop grown in the U.S. is of GM origin, which means if any food product contains “sugar” or some other sugar derivative like glucose or sucrose, it is more than likely a GMO.” FOOD MATTERS shared this useful article clearly explaining things to avoid. While it makes sense that this cannot be done overnight, gaining an understanding and taking steps in the right direction can impact your life, and your family, greatly. It just takes practice.
Why is it so hard? Understandable, sort of; especially since we have grown up eating this way and we often fall prey to marketing. For example, just because it is a smoothie or the word “natural” is on the label, that does not mean it is healthy. But thinking about what we consume is probably pretty important.
If you knew that by consuming pure food (defined as food in it’s original state; untouched or not modified by humans) you could possibly stop taking that pill your doctor has prescribed or perhaps you would feel more energetic, would you take the time to think about it? If you knew that eating real food could help your metabolism stabilize and maybe give you your desired weight, would you do it?
While we do not make claims for your speciific health and we always reccomend you consult your doctor, our suggestion is pretty basic: EAT REAL FOOD.
