What Is Real Food?

Our supermarkets have become so dominated by highly processed food products (many of which claim health benefits) it can be hard to distinguish the good stuff from the bad stuff. Here is a simple mantra to help you make better food purchasing decisions.

Real food is food which was recently alive.

Vegetables, fruits, tubers, nuts, beans, whole grains, seeds, eggs, meat, fish. This is all real food which was recently alive. You can picture these items living, growing and breathing in nature!

Muffins, crisps, chocolates, sweets, pancakes, pizzas, pasta. This is all processed food which was never alive. You cannot picture these items living, growing and breathing in nature!
