  • Very easily! In fact when I'm on my own I eat a lot of "pure" food. Lots of raw vegetables. Just because I don't want to go through the trouble of cooking it all. It's tasty, quick and less dishes to wash.

  • I don't know.. I do a lot of "semi" home made foods, so cooking from scratch would be new for me.

  • Yes, with the exception of canned fruits and veggies. In my area, nothing is fresh, so we have to purchase everything in cans...

  • I have, many years ago, when I found out I had Interstitial cystitis (a bladder full of holes and cracks, everything sets it on fire especially MSG and preservatives, nitrates..) I felt so much better after I got a healthy diet...of course last year I found stage 3 breast cancer so I might have been a little late on getting healthy.

  • We haven't used processed foods at home for almost 10 years. Of course we eat out occasionally and eat at friends' and family homes where we don't have control over what's served, but I feel good just knowing that our intake is very minimal.

  • I rarely buy processed foods because I don't like the fake additives and preservatives in it. If only people knew what those chemicals really came from. Ive been educating myself for several years now, and the chemicals that are in these processed foods are ridiculous.
