Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a whole new concept for me. It’s a great way to get fresh, locally grown produce on a weekly basis. What is Community Supported Agriculture? Some farms allow members of the community to purchase shares of produce. Shares are paid for in advance of the harvesting season and a share […]

It has been two weeks since my husband and I spent the entire day watching a marathon of food documentaries. Those documentaries changed the way we view food and our relationship with it.

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. […]

What About Meat?

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.

When starting a new food journey, think in the comparative vs. the superlative. Thinking in the superlative on a daily basis is a recipe for failure. 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 […]

There are some things man is not supposed to do. Screwing around with seeds is one of them. God created this earth perfectly the first go ‘round. There is no need to try to improve on perfection.

After filling my head with more information than I could stand, I decided it was time to do something. Before I go any further, here’s a tip; although we shared the titles of food documentaries in the About Real Food post, don’t do like I did and watch all of them over a period of […]

Finding Real Food

Throughout this blog I’ll be using real food and whole food interchangeably. It is my opinion that most of the food found in the average grocery store isn’t real. It’s got more chemicals, preservatives and additives than real food. Let’s take Cool Whip for example. Wired magazine did an article about its ingredients. No sense […]

If you or anyone you know eats food, you should be aware of the information contained in the movie “The Future of Food  .” Realizing how important it is to get this information out to the general public, the creators of the movie have made the movie available for free (without commercial interruptions).

This post used to be the “About” page on a blog I recently created. Instead of continuing with the new blog, I thought it would be better to combine the contents of that blog with this one. I had originally created the blog entitled Real Food Adventures, when I became aware of several disturbing practices […]
