Just finished reading Food Rules by Michael Pollan.  Loved it. The basic principal is eating more simply.  Try foods with the least ingredients, foods from nature in their simplest form...sounds easy. Then I looked in my cupboard....yikes.  Why do so many foods that should contain just a few things, have tons of ingredients? The author explains that eating this way will make you feel loads better.  I already feel great about all my walking, so why shouldn't my eating follow suit.  Going to dip my big toe into trying recipes that have little or no processed foods in them.  For myself I'm trying for every meal.  With the family I am just changing dinner.  This week I came up with this  set of meals.  I am hoping just a few weeks and I'll be hooked.
