What is REAL food??

Merriam-Webster's dictionary defines real as: "not fake, false, or artificial". So first let me tell you what real food is not.  Any artificial (made by man, not nature) sweetener, flavor, coloring, or preservative is not real food.  I don't care if it makes it look good in the package, preserves it so you can have it two months after it was made, or tickles your taste-buds with it's sweetness, it's not real food, therefore it may harm you.  If your plan is to improve your health, stay away from fake foods/additives.  Eat real foods that are healing!
  The real food, such as fruits, vegetables, meats, nuts, and milk, is found at the perimeter of the grocery store.  Fresh foods are there for you to make meals from scratch.  Don't be afraid of "from scratch".  I was at first but then I realized it just means to make something yourself with basic whole ingredients.  
  There are plenty of real food recipes out there that are easy to follow.  Some are as simple as chopping some vegetables and adding spices.  We will share some of our "tried and true" real food recipes to help you get started.  If you truly don't know how to cook, don't know how to get started, or don't have the time, we can help.  Contact us to make arrangements.
