  • I make his food from the meats, vegetables, fruits, and starches I eat. We don't buy much in terms of prepared foods, and he doesn't drink juice unless we make it from the juicer at home. I do add some sugar to the homemade juice, but not much-- he doesn't care for super sweet things anyway.

    I did make his birthday cake-- artificial dyes in that one, but he didnt' like how sweet it was.

  • I guess I would avoid canned food,packaged meals, bakery and Deli foods. Do your own cooking with fresh ingredients.
    And read labels!!!

  • It's been a slow process but I'm trying to eliminate process foods as much as I can. I do a lot of cooking from scratch so for meals it's easy. Finding snacks that are easy and tasty has been a little more difficult. Sometimes a piece of fruit just doesn't cut it.
