Processed food.



Log in to see fewer ads
The more I edjumucate myself about nutrition, the more I want to stay away from most stuff in a can, plastic bag or a box. Rarely even buy bread or other baked goods anymore.

The old saying "only buy items stocked on the perimeter of the store" makes some sense.

Went shopping today and the only highly processed items I bought were potato salad, some fancy onion & chive cream cheese and cat food. I tend to read the ingredients now. Hope kitty doesn't.

Scary isn't it. Other than dried beans and rice...very few healthy choices at the average grocery market.

Did a deep dive on nutrition some time ago, were really trying to slowly kill ourselves from our diets.

Watch the obesity map chronologically, its mind blowing from a historical sense.

Stopped buying processed food when my daughter was young, although feeding her became a challenge as she was so picky back then (I often had to prepare two different meals.) I love to cook, however.

Now living alone, it's a bit of a challenge to prepare small meals, and I do buy some processed stuff. One thing that's handy is frozen veggies - which are often far more economical. Arguably more "fresh" than fresh.

A huge bonus/benefit to "healthy eating" is the fact I have a vacuum seaker - I cook sous vide a lot (most days), so it also comes in handy to store and/or freeze all kinds of things. Stuff like curing salts (I make my own bacon and pancetta), bulk yeast, steaks (Prime from Costco, seasoned then frozen), portions of meals that can save. I buy bulk packs of chicken thighs, season them in pairs, bag and freeze ready to be thrown in the water bath at some point in the future. Same with pork chops when I can find decent thickness. Stuff like cottage pie or moussaka can be portioned after baking, frozen, then vacuum bagged to preserve shape.

A bit of a rant, but a vacuum sealer really helps me eat a lot healthier than I could otherwise.

Itís hard to avoid processed food.

I love to eat.

But yea. Meat and veggies are the way to go.
Some heathy carbs.

Avoid. Processed wheat and sugar.
Sodas and bread are making folks unhealthy for sure.

Funny doctors never ask about diet and exercise. They just want you on a pill.
Pills kill!
The government wants you on pills and in the hospital.

If it makes them money or eliminates you they are happy.


Did I mention I love crappy Thai instant noodles.

I have been putting a lot of effort into eating healthy for the past two years. Buying a vacuum sealer was very helpful!

Giving up pasta, bread, potatoes, and rice was not easy! That plus a LOT of exercise led to my losing 60 lbs. Having had to deal with abdominal surgery and upcoming back surgery has put the brakes on much of the exercise I had been doing. Still doing the best that I can, but have not been as strict with my diet. I have been gaining back some of the weight. I need to pay attention to the food intake. Not so much the quantity, but the quality.
Avoiding processed foods is a huge part of eating healthy!

in spades.


And obesity is a large part of the reason that Covid has taken such a toll in this country.




A friend used to say that if you're eating something and it tastes good, spit it out because it's obviously bad for you.

I've been thinking the same thing myself. Our country has a booming health care industry for a reason.

Good point!



Except maybe Doritos. I'm pretty sure they are one of the four major food groups!

Ha!

I have been snacking on Natures Promise Vegetable Sticks because the name sounds healthy!

They are actually not too unhealthy except for the sodium (200mg)

Serving size 36 sticks.....Ha! 14 servings per container??? I must have gotten a defective bag because it only had 3 servings in it!

Get ready for Soylent Green, Coming soon to a Nutrient Dispenser Near You.!
Probably the one in your cage, next to the water bottle.

So much news about Beyond Meat, and the tastiness of insects, that you know exactly what’s coming.

Hey Rhody;
Are those pictures from the same bag, front and rear? If so I understand why you have a problem with math. 14, one ounce servings out of an eight ounce bag?

i started intermittent fasting about 3 years ago now. right off i lost 55 lbs and went from a BMI of 32 down to where i've been staying at about a BMI = 23. i don't call IF a diet anymore, it's simply the way i eat every day. breakfast a little past noon and nothing else after about 7-8 pm. i don't count calories and the only exercise i get is walking. i should have started this years ago. not easy... you have to deal with hunger episodes and ignore them, but the alternative is poor health and a shorter life.
