Unprocessed Foods Diet?? - Page 2

post #21 of 24

Regarding the original post...my method is to shop around the perimeter of the store as much as possible and only venture into the aisles for food I don't make.  Like bread products, cheerios, and sigh-canned tomatoes.  It'll be a great day in my family food-wise when I finally learn to bake!  This method is a bit simplistic but it generally gets the job done.

 

And re: the canned tomatoes which have been a staple in my family's diet for awhile...we're looking forward to our tomato harvest this summer...hopefully it'll be a bumper yr and we can jar our little crop in place of the grocery store cans.  If we have no luck with our own garden (we're not the best gardeners (yet!)) winky.gif I'm going to buy from a farmers market and use those to jar.

God dam it why is EVERYTHING in this world so messed up???  Thank you for the info on tetra-paks, I am SO frustrated!!  I have been buying organic chicken broth that comes in those things instead of cans, but dang it!!  EVERYTHING is bad for you!!  Why do none of these companies care about how their products and packaging affect people or the environment!!

Anyway, has any one heard of the site momsrising.org?  They have action alerts that sometimes cover things like this.  Also http://www.organicconsumers.org/action.cfm   you can sign up for their action alerts and they will send you links to sign petitions and stuff via email and a lot of it is about health things like whats in our food and stuff.

what about the michael pollan book food rules?  if you've not read his stuff, here's an article that's along those same lines http://michaelpollan.com/articles-archive/rules-to-eat-by/   

it might be simplistic and not something everybody here's already said but i think his writing is very attractive and motivating.
