    Can't Seem To Give-up...

    Ranch dressing.  I have given-up on the shelf-stable bottled variety, but I love my Naturally Fresh Lite Ranch.  It is made with mostly real, identifiable ingredients (real dairy, eggs, etc.), but it contains partially hydrogenated oil and monosodium glutamate.  I give the...

    Out With Processed, In With Homemade Dinners

    Processed food is not good for you, it is usually high in sugar, salt and fat. It has tons of other stuff that I really don't understand and some of it is too scary to even print what it is, they have to put a number on the packet instead!I am a stay at home Mum so I have plenty...

    Should Be Illegal

    So much food is processed so bad I don't know how they can get away with even calling it food. It's all chemicals, dyes, sweeteners, the only real food is the extreme amount of salt added to it. Something like a Oreo is so insane in the nutrition value being all sugar and fat. A...
