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 Dictionary.com, real is defined as:
- genuine; not counterfeit, artificial, or imitation;
a real antique; a real diamond; real silk.
According to Dictionary.com,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!)
