What is 'Real Food?'
Time to get back to real food. So the question is, What is real food? Ask yourself these simple questions:
1) Does it come in a box, can, bag, jar, or need to stay frozen?
2) Does it have a nutritional label on it?
3) Does it contain more than 1 ingredient?
4) Will it last longer than 3 days?
If the answer is yes chances are,
it's not real food, it's processed. So what is real food then? Here is a VERY
short list of some of my favorite real foods?
oatmeal, chicken, yogurt, bananas
apples, cashews, haddock, cauliflower
carrots, broccoli, turkey, kiwi
spinach, lean beef, ham, oranges
berries, peppers, flax seeds, sweet potatoes
You can make a ton of meals with just these ingredients. Spice it up with some herbs and spices, garlic and basil are 2 of my absolute favorites. Now get back to real!
