Cheerry Tomatoes

It has been one week since I sat through the marathon of food documentaries.

Beginning the Transition


One thing that I found to be very helpful when transitioning from my old way of eating to making healthier choices is to have the family on board. Making the change is difficult enough but it could be even more difficult with a defiant family. If you don’t have family support, your road will be… Read More


Finding Real Food

Orange Slice

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… Read More
