7 Foods to Avoid

I'm not sure where this originated from, but I was sent it by our good family friend, Evelyn. She has been clean and organic eating for many years now and even raises her own chickens! :) The article lists 7 foods we should stop eating that would considerably reduce obesity and the occurrence of different diseases. You can read the full article here.

Here's the list and my thoughts on each item:

1. Wheat--super hard for me to give up completely. I am such a carb-lover and giving up all wheat-based foods would be miserable. Our family has cut down on the amount of wheat-based products we eat, cutting out a lot of carbs at every meal. 

2. Soy--Beside soy sauce that I buy organically, I don't eat soy.

3. Corn--Again, we don't eat a lot of corn products. We love corn-on-the-cob in the summer, but buy from local organic farmers. Also, we've pretty much eliminated high-fructose corn syrup from our diet too.

4. Processed Food--see the last six months :)

5. Refined Grains/Flour--again, have already been doing this through clean eating. 

6. Processed (Preserved Meat)/Conventional (Factory-Produced) Meat--another hard one; we love hot dogs and sausage in our house, but thankfully I've found all-natural alternatives (Hebrews All-Natural hot dogs, buying sausage from local farmers). We are also buying 1/2 an organic, grain-fed cow. 

7. Conventional Dairy--Again, do this already. 

What are your thoughts on these 7 foods??
