Needle in a Haystack?
Good food is hard to find. The grocery store has so much stuff it’s a bit like a kid in a candy store. So many choices, what do you do?
You probably gravitate to what’s familiar. After all, you’ve heard the commercial hundreds of times. The ad says it’s quick and easy to make and you’ll be doing your family a favor by cooking it. They’re telling you the truth, right? They wouldn’t want to harm you and your family…
What if you’re hungry and you need something for dinner now? Without a plan and a menu, it’s a bit of a crap shoot. A cluster…
You’re at their mercy really. And if you’re like most Americans you shop by default. Driven by your subconscious desire to fill a void, a void that is fueled by a television ad.

Industrial food is poison. Inflammation and many other “dis-eases” result when your body is malnourished (processed food does not give you the nutrients your body requires) and toxic.
4. Does your food require refrigeration? Does it have a short shelf life?
Industrial-processed food can last for years on the shelf due to massive quantities of additives. None of which were ever designed to be ingested by the human body.
Healthy food creates a healthy body. When you care enough about how you feel, you will do the work it takes to learn how to get your body healthy.
We have resources for you, but you've got to decide if you're worth the effort it takes. What do you value most?
