Do you feed your family a special diet?

We do as many whole foods as possible, no HFCs and are eliminating GMOs. Plus we try to eat vegetarian most of the time. What does your family do?

  • We eat low fat, we only drink milk that has no growth hormones or antibiotics, we only eat "natural" or organic meats that have not been treated with hormones or antibiotics, we avoid trans fats, we eat lower sodium than other families I know (due to my low sodium diet), and I make most of our foods from scratch in an attempt to avoid HFCS as much as possible, as well as preservatives and chemicals that I can't even pronounce.

  • I attempt to do the same... If we use dairy products, we only use the ones without growth hormones or antibiotics and must be organic. I try to get a lot of things that are organic anyhow. We are flexitarians. I also don't buy frozen foods or a lot of pakaged items. I try to make as many things as possible from scratch. (Homemade pasta and sauce!!) The food industry has become disgusting and i'd rather have my family not eating the unneccessary chemicals, Genetically Modified items, biproducts, etc in their food.

  • Well, our diet sounds a lot like yours. We try to eat mostly organic. Absolutely NOTHING with hfcs, msg, hydrogenated oils etc. We get water delivered that is unfluoridated and comes in BPA free bottles. Everything brown/whole grain....rices, pastas, breads. Always balanced meals....carb, protein, veggie. We sometimes buy organic milk, but we buy almond milk a lot too...it's a little cheaper than organic milk.

  • We use portion control and time...we eat at the same time everyday and only serve portion appropriate sizes of food.
