In 2015, I made a promise to myself and my family that we are clean eating for this year. At first, the word clean eating was a foreign concept, but when I see how much chemical’s I was exposing myself and family too; I had to start eliminating them once and for all. I came across a clean eating magazine and it change my view about how I chose to feed my family from this year on. Don’t get me wrong; I was reading every label before to make sure; I pick up low sodium or no added sugar food’s but I was surprise to learn that my 100% natural tomato sauce ; wasn’t so natural. I learn that citric acid was the same thing that I clean my bathtub with (gross) and I don’t want to feed my family this stuff any longer. So, for the first 5 day’s, we ate everything we had in my home and I’ll be donating some more food this weekend; because I don’t believe in wasting food.
My first concern about my clean eating diet was the cost. I found International Food Bazaar in Long Island City, NY and that concern went straight out the window. This store has everything and you don’t have to worry about spending a fortune to be chemical free. As a family, we promise not to add process foods into our diet. We only eat organic meat’s and fresh vegetable’s and fruits. I found this quote: “You can’t expect to look like a million bucks if you eat from the dollar menu”; I have to remind myself this every time; I go grocery shopping and see the cost of grass feed beef for $25.00 a pound. LOL!
