I am talking about all the added ingredience that go into making a food last longer on the shelf and to make it taste better.
What happened to food that does not have a lot of stuff put in it that you can not even understand the word anymore say it.

Hi I think you mean preservatives unfortunately they are in almost everything you by even brand name breads. Where I work they bake everyday no preservatives are added so I can buy fresh every day. The only way to get around this is read your labels and by organic. Great post.

We grow our own vegetables in the summer and freeze them for the autumn and winter months. This way, we can eat organic all year round, at least when it comes to vegetables and fruit. As for the rest, I try to stay away from processed foods as much as possible. Always read the ingredients, the shorter the better and like you said, if you can't pronounce it don't eat it. I think it all comes down to respecting your body and making sure you don't treat it like a garbage dump.

Another problem nowadays is that they have introduced hormones and GMO's into our foods and those are things that they don't list in the ingredients but should. Also steer clear of trans fats.

Great post!

chrissyann123, you are right I did mean preservatives, but when I was doing the post my mind went blank and the word I was looking for would not come to me. Thanks for the save.
I agree with you about buying organic but this can be really expensive for anyone feeding a family of more then 2 people. Reading the label is like second nature to me only because I had to change the way I cook after my husband's heart attack

prettyrainbow that is wonderful that you grow your own vegetables. Preserving and freezing helps you stay healthy. I used to make everything from scratch when my kids were growing up. I even made my own bread. My kids used to trade their lunches for store bought stuff when other kids wanted to trade. I thought I was being so smart by making sure that they ate right just to find out they were giving it away. Oh well at least I could see what they were eating when they were at home. I also made my own jam, tomato and chili sauces.
Keep up the good work.
P.S You are right about the hormones and GMO's and it is getting scary what they are putting in the food these days.

First of all I am so sorry to hear about your husband I worry about mine all the time even though I do cook healthy he seam to always find and eat the worst fattening food he can find like deep fried chicken wings, deep fried french fries I think you get my point. I have tried very hard to change his eating habits. I think every one knew what you meant I just wanted to make sure so I answered the post correctly. That is great that you read all the labels and I know it can get so expensive to try to eat organic. I always try to buy my fruits and vegetables in season, also canning and freezing really helps and as PrettyRainbow suggested growing your own. This was such an important post thanks so much for sharing it. I sent you a ChickAdvisor friendship request please accept it if you like so I can read more of your community posts and reviews. Thanks Again.

Thanks for your concern. My husbands heart attack was quite some time ago and he did really well for the first few years and then things just sort of caved for him.
Maybe I should have started a post on our husbands eating You can not be with them every minute of every day and all any of us can do is try the best we can.
You take care and I did accept your request to friendship. Enjoy your weekend.
