I have known for years what to eat and what not to eat.  Doing it is different.  But yesterday I watched a video that involved children.  My eyes teared up.  Kids, my kids, your kids ~ it is heartbreaking what we as parents see in the grocery store aisle and buy.  We buy it because its labeled as "natural" or "no sugar added" or "whole grain"...all catch phrases to imply healthy.  However if you turn over to the ingredient section you will not be able to pronounce half of it.  And in my opinion if I can't pronounce something I better look into eating it.

I may be fixated, in a cult, or whatever you want to call it.  But, one thing is for sure I am going to research and educate myself on something that could affect my children. 

I have no more time or money then the next person.  And when it comes to eating I think that's most of our excuses.  Organic pasta, organic pasta sauce, organic frozen green beans and corn, and fresh made meatballs cost $15 to feed our family of 5. My husband took leftovers to work today and I will feed the kids with it again tonight.  If we would have went to Pizza Hut it would have cost at least $30.  Its math.

I am not perfect and we will probably eat at Pizza Hut in the future.  The kids have Book It coupons to redeem.  What I am is aware.  I am open minded.  I am learning. 

Watch the video and start doing your own research.
