One thing people always want to know is if I EVER eat processed foods? Well, the truth is every once in a while I do eat tater tots – organic, granola, flash frozen fish (meaning it was frozen on the boat), gluten free baking mix and of course my freezer always has organic frozen broccoli, organic green beans and of course organic marinara sauce is good to have in the pantry – I’m NOT rigid with myself or my family – I just do my best to cook as often as possible simple foods in their original forms. With this said I’m always checking out what is available in the already made food sections and last night I was shopping with my friend Mary Alice at our local Trader Joes, when we discovered a new frozen Asian foods section, I of course had to pick up the Bento Box (typically found at Japanese restaurants). Quickly M.A. whipped out her iphone & gorilla style filming was on!
What amazed me was that most of the items in this frozen section were low in sugar & not packed with preservatives and additives and I could pronounce & identify the ingredients. What I really mean to do here at PKIA is to inspire folks to KNOW what they are eating and only a choice can be had if we take the time to read and ask WHAT’S IN IT….With this said fresh REAL food is the best.
