I think we can say, without any doubts, all packed/canned food had some major processing done.

 

A lot of people don't know 'natural food' even if it slapped them in the face. Even stuff like vegetables and such can be 'processed/treated/sped up' in some way during growth.

 

The big food companies are adding fat, sugar, salt and a ton of additives and colorings to your food. Have a look on the box how long that list can get.

And even the sugar isn't real sugar, but processed corn syrup. One of the reasons for obesity is so wildly spread. No tin foil hat here....

 

Stop eating your meals out of a box, and start eating real vegetables, fruits and whole grain bread.

Be critical of the stuff on the label. When it says 'healthy' on the label, take that with a truckload of salt. ;-)

Bad idea! It'll already have a truckload of salt in it! :p

A lot of those veggies and fruits come with pesticides, e. coli, and a high price. ;)

if they use turmeric, it can be just as orange, and naturally good for you.  and even in small amounts covers everything orange.     i dont think it is that expensive in bulk either for them not to be able to do so.turmeric-komplet-web-final.jpg

Tumeric is used in more expensive things to dye food yellow, along with beta carotene. both of these do not cause as many reactions. Why craft has to dye its mac and cheese yellow in the first place I have no idea. high end chefs are doing away with using yellow cheese in their foods. Why can't kraft.

Ever heard of washing it before you eat it?

 

Or better yet, Organic produce?

Most people don't know how to cook vegetables properly anyway, and just boil them into oblivion.  Me, I only ever steam my veg.  Keeps the colours vibrant, the flavours intact and the all important slight crunch! Veg should never be mush unless you're making a puree...

 

Ive been into roasting my veg recently, with a little spray of olive oil, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper before the roast.

Get it to where its JUST starting to carmelize on top...Soooooo good, and no water to leach the flavor out, and not mushy at all.

Organic produce is waaayyyyyyyy too expensive for what it is, its pretty much a scam to buy it anywhere but a farmers market.

If you want to eat nothing but Organic, you need a 6 figure salary pretty much.

:x - Veg is definitely gross when they are mush.
