Anyone else watch Jamie Oliver last Friday? I'm disgustednto learn what some candies etc are using in their ingredients! Including the gross stuff I put as the title.."..
Anyone else thinking about doing a huge change of what you eat?

Matt and I made a deal that next time we go grocery shopping we won't buy anything with unknown words in the ingredient lists...it's going to be hard cuz I know there's few items that don't have all that crap' but I want to try!

Yes, we are in the process of changing our diets. My one bit of advice...do it slowly...one step at a time...or you'll get frustrated and quit. Maybe you won't quit, but it can be frustrating to change it all at once. Start simple...don't buy junk. Then take one food group at a time and find a better alternative to what you had been using in the past. That's what we're doing anyway. We are very close to reaching our goal. My project this week is homemade coffee creamer. Here's an awesome website I stumbled upon one day in my search for 'whole food' recipes...http://heavenlyhomemakers.com/

I was gonna make a thread about this Laura, I am glad you did. I love Jamie Oliver, and wish he was in my town so I could support his cause.

i did do a huge change in what i eat and what i put on myself recently. i watched food inc. and that was it. i was disgusted. i also bought burts bees chapstick, and it says something about no parabens, sulfates, petroleum ever. i wondered what was "bad" about those things, and looked them up, and decided i wanted to change that too. every manufacturer out there is out to make a buck the cheapest way with the cheapest unhealthy ingredients that dont' even work and just keep the cycle going so we buy more of their products to "fix" what the other product did.
i like knowing i'm not doing too many unnatural things anymore. but, i havn't cut out "bad" things completely, i believe everything in moderation is the key. :)

Oh me too Marina. I so want to get our school board to change the lunch program, but I don't even know where to start. I plan to make my kid's lunch everyday, but what about the other kids? And what about the kids whose only meal comes from the sugar and preservative filled cafeteria breakfast and lunch? And we wonder why there is an obesity and diabetes epidemic.
