Continuing on my quest for real food, I recently purchased a pound and a half of chicken breast from my local grocery store. They offer a separate meat section to sell free-range poultry from chickens that were not fed antibiotics or animal growth hormones. In this section you can also find free-range grass fed beef. […]

It’s been almost two weeks since I’ve made changes to my eating habits. As I mentioned in an earlier post, my goal is to eat whole or real foods. In my opinion, meat is considered a real food. Wait, let me rephrase that last statement. I don’t consider the poorly fed, antibiotic laden under exercised […]

Years of poor eating choices and poor eating habits cannot be fixed overnight. It takes weeks, months and sometimes years of incremental changes. Looking at your daily food choices […]
