Granted, I'm not one to necessarily dig into all the hype and craziness of the most recent thing to cause cancer to be linked to disease, but some things just make more sense that others...
(interesting chart by the CDC, and American Obesity Association)
- Like eating less processed food.
- Getting more exercise.
- Cooking your own food.
- No HFCS (high-fructose corn syrup). We can "make" our own honey and maple syrup. And we don't need all the additional sugar--Grandma didn't make her spaghetti sauce with sugar.
- No butter flavoring--home-popped is just as good, and we can make all our own with growing popcorn and dairying. Plus there's that whole popcorn lung thing.
- No shortening/margarine--crazy trans fats, lard and butter are home-grown, and honestly better for you. (Check out the nutritional values, I dare you. :) )
