Hi all, I need some kind of legitimate guide to healthy eating. I want to cut out high fructose corn syrup completely. I want to switch to organic everything. I want to know how to read labels and what foods are considered to be healthy/unhealthy. We eat ground turkey, is this healthy? I know it is better than beef, but is it processed meat? We live in a small country town, but I don't know where I can buy organic produce, and I don't know how to find out. Would it be sold at walmart? I know a lot of people are against walmart, but it is the cheapest. We also have a foodlion and a shoprite here but anything but store brand foods are significantly marked up.
My daughter is 2 and I want to get her and our family on the right track. I need to figure out how to transition my husband (red meat loving - although he eats turkey bc I made such a big deal about mad cow - comfort foods, high starch, grew up with central VA home cooking kind of guy) to the kind of diet I want us to start eating, or even some kind of middle ground.
I know this is a lot, but I appreciate any and all help someone could give me.
Edited to add: I know genetically modified foods are bad, but how would I even know it if I saw it? Is it written somewhere on the packaging? Sorry if I sound idiotic, I just have no idea.
