I am wanting to change my family over to a better diet. While I think we have made great strides at this in the last year, I think there is also lots of room for improvement. We NEED to do this. We have to stop eating so much unhealthy food. Last night we went out to dinner and Will and I were both sick afterwards from the grease. Yes, we could have ordered healthier meals but we didn't.
I am vowing here that we are hopping on the healthy, real food bandwagon. I am going to s-l-o-w-l-y make the transition to get as much processed, artificial, fake foods out of our diet as possible. While this is going to be a huge challenge for me, I feel like we need to do this.
I have started reading labels recently and am shocked at what is on the things that we are eating. I would love to switch strictly to an organic way of eating but realistically I know we probably can't afford to do this entirely. I can however, grow more of my own food and try and make more of my own meals at home. This will help me be more aware of what I am putting into my families body.
I don't think we can completely cut out chips, granola bars and ice cream forever but I do think we can certainly limit these things and be on the look out for a more healthier alternative.
