My Blinders Are Off

2014-09-26 | 0 comments

I bristle at Real Family Real Food ever being perceived as judgemental.  It is not. We are all real families just trying to make good choices when and where we can. This week, is no different.
Want to make a really good choice? This is a very simple one. See Fed Up -the movie. See it with your whole family. It is truly important.
It is not political. It is not highbrow. It does not blame the victim. Is it a very well done, documentary that is accessible to both kids and adults.

Here's the personal part: I have heard over and over about the "-oses" amd "-ates" in food and I do a fairly ggod job at avoiding them but, this film landed on me in a new way. My blinders are off. And, as much as the information infuriated both my husband and I, the most profound impact was on my kids. They really took it in.
To be clear, I refuse to demonize sugar.  I will, however, be conscious of when, how and how much it enters my family’s diet. I buy the food, I cook the food – I AM IN CONTROL.
I think that will stick with … Real Family Real Food!
