In our local grocery stores there are isles and isles of ‘food’, over 47 000 items actually, but how much of it is really food????
As I have become more and more aware over the years, have tried to eat healthier, I have made a rule to myself to keep things simple when I have boughten package foods ( before I became raw and of course with teenagers now!!).
I use the KISS method, you know, Keep It Simple Silly, or Sweetheart of whatever you would like:)!!
Here are my guidelines that I follow……
– If I have to learn ‘swaheli’ (is there really such a language??), just to learn how to pronounce the words, then I didn’t buy it!
– If I had to carry a dictionnary around to look up the word (and there really is no such thing as some of these words aren’t there!), then I didn’t buy it and why is it so hard to find out what some of these words are, like the dozen or so different names for MSG????
– If it has a shelf life longer than my dog’s life, another NO!
I kept it pretty simple, and for anyone starting out and going Raw is just to radical, just try these simple rules. I will post again on where you can then proceed from keeping it simple to even eliminating more and still keeping it simple.
Eating healthy shouldn’t be complicated or hard, it’s just like learning how to ride a bike, it’s something new, but over time, the choices get easier and clearer and you will feel the benefits of it!!
You will probably also start to notice that you won’t be going down as many isles for so called ‘food’!!
Here’s to Your Health!!
