As I’ve been trying to do a bit better at not feeding my family processed foods, I’ve been doing a lot of reading online to try to find recipes as well as suggestions. The internet or “magic box” is a wonderful thing for research, but you can easily get caught up in too much information. There are tons of blogs, scientific articles and magazine fluff pieces on what is or isn’t healthy, what we should never eat, what we should always eat, etc. And honestly, if you read all of it you can easily be left with the impression that there is nothing you can do. We are indeed screwed. Doomed as it were to live shorter lifespans loaded down with unhealthy foods and drinks.
This is one of the reasons why I decided from the get go that I wasn’t going to be militant with this. Other reasons are that it could easily get ridiculously expensive or take far more time than I have. Also, I’m notoriously good at half assing things. So this whole process of being less processed will truly be aimed at being less processed. We will not be the models of clean living who avoid anything with a trace of badforyouness. But we will be better where I can.
In the meantime, here’s a funny look at how ridiculously hard it would be to actually follow all of the nutrition advice we are constantly bombarded with.
