I have good intentions when it comes to feeding my family. However taste convenience, and price are also influential factors. Which brings me to this list. The irony in some of my choices:
* I always choose whole grains, brown rice and sweet potatoes instead of white...but when it comes to salad only iceberg lettuce will do
* I buy organic chicken and wild caught salmon for dinner.....but often eat sliced deli meat and canned tuna for lunch
* I avoid refined sugar whenever possible....but have no problem dumping a few packets of splenda into my plain yogurt
* I drink at least 64oz of plain water a day....but I also drink about 20-30 oz of black coffee every morning
My friends got me thinking about this recently. They've started milling their own organic grain to bake into homemade bread. One loaf lasts 2-3 days. They keep trying to sell us on how much healthier it is and how we should be doing it too.
Maybe in a perfect world. We're lucky I have time to get to the store to buy a loaf of bread. My store bought Ezekial bread will have to do. However, I will grind my own almond and peanut butter so I can get it in it's purest, freshest form.
So what do you make a priority when it comes to choosing foods? Where do you cut corners or contradict yourself?
