Real food defined

Okay, I need to get into the rhythm of blogging. Yikes! I can’t believe
over a week has passed since my last (first) post!

According to, real is defined as:

  • genuine; not counterfeit, artificial, or imitation;
    a real antique; a real diamond; real silk.

According to,food is defined as:

  • any nourishing substance that is eaten, drunk, or
    otherwise taken into the body to sustain life, provide
    energy, promote growth, etc.

So, when I combine the definitions, my definition of  real food is:

  • genuine and authentic (no artificial ingredients) nourishing substances
    that are eaten or drunk  to sustain life, provide energy, and promote growth.

I believe that we need to take responsibility for our health and do our own research as to what might help us as an individual. Just because “they’ve always done it this way..” doesn’t mean that’s the way it works for you. I’m not saying to ignore doctor’s advice/orders, just to be informed as much as you can. You’re the one who has to live with your body day in and day out. (Be sure to check out the fine print on my about page!)
