I have been saying for years that processed food was bad and I thought that I had done my part to eliminate most of it. Boy was I fooling myself.
I was reading a recent post http://aprettypennyblog.com/2014/01/28/hungry-for-change/ , so I decided to check it out….I am sooo guilty!! I honestly don’t know if I can give up sugar?!
I personally know about nutri sweet, I am allergic and I get a horrible migraine if I consume it. Luckily it has a distinct taste so I am mostly able to avoid it…..mostly.
I can give up a lot, but my sweet tea??? My coffee????? Let’s not forget that high fructose corn syrup is in most things and who doesn’t love a little msg?? As a culture we are pretty much screwed!
I thought it was GB’s dad but it turned out to be his grandfather that said it best “this country went to hell when we stopped growing our own food!”

I struggled and won the battle against nicotine, but sugar….I am not sure I can beat that demon.
How do you work a full time job and churn your own butter? Yes we all know how overly dramatic that I can be, but what’s a girl to do?
When I was sick last week I happened to catch Cameron Diaz on Rachel Ray talking about her “body book” and she said a lot of the same things. How did she put it? “just because you put it in your mouth,chew it, swallow it, and poop it out….doesn’t mean it’s food!” It was something along those lines.
The universe keeps putting the information right in front of me….how long until I am smart enough to listen?….Zia
