  • I try my hardest not to eat any of it. The sodium levels in most of that stuff is out of the roof, besides the hfcs and other random "preservatives" that are in them.

  • I hardly ever get premade food. I cook almost everything from scratch.

  • I try not to eat it. If I make homemade hamburger helper or homemade pizza, I find my kids eat it. If I make Hamburger Helper, they pick at it. A loaf of homemade bread has flour, yeast, sugar, water, milk, butter, a teaspoon of salt and that is it. A cheap loaf of bread has over 20 ingredients. Do I cook from scratch 100% of the time and never use boxed foods? Of course not. I have HH and boxed macaroni and cheese in my cabinets. I just have not used them in over a year.
