GMOs, organic, superfood, probiotic, all natural.... Can I just say that at this point in my life and in my lifestyle change, I just know I need to eat healthy? For me, that means cooking most of my own food. That means being intentional about what I put in my mouth. It took me a long time to get to this point. But I still am focused on doing this right... because I am never going back.
So please excuse me if from time to time I post a recipe that does not include organic vegetables in the ingredients list, please excuse me if I am confused about what foods are genetically modified, which ones are probiotic, and which is the best superfood.
I think one of the reasons I failed at weight loss attempts before is because I tried to read all the articles. One week I was told to eat more of one thing, the next to never eat something else, the next time I turned around a different food was something I should eat all the time. I can't keep up, and I get confused and kind of freaked out, and then I give up. I'm not giving up this time.
It's baby steps. I eat clean, every day. I don't have cheat days (okay, hardly ever). But I still have a lot to learn. Right now I need to focus on finding new recipes my whole family will enjoy. Maybe next year I can learn about all that other stuff. Just not today.
