Well that was over ten years ago and I sometimes buy my chicken nuggets in the freezer section at Sam's Club and find myself stocking up on snack foods so I won't have to actually "prepare" things when my ravenous children are calling out for food. Even though we have tried to minimize sugary treats and not eat out too much, there is still much room for improvement. After I finished reading Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food, I am excited about feeding my family well again. I don't expect it to be easy and I don't think I can follow everything 100% but if even small changes can have a positive effect on our future health, I think it is worth a shot.
So here it goes, my attempt to wean my family from what food researchers call the "Western Diet."
