For a while now I’ve been toying with the idea of eating far fewer processed foods.

As we all should know, they’re notoriously full of artificial preservatives, artificial colours, and artificial flavours. One glance at the long list of “numbers” on a packet is mind-boggling.

Many are so far removed from their original raw form that it’s hard to believe they can actually be called a food.

This is especially true of fast-food.

Yet even products that profess to be “all natural” can be questionable. And their advertising is often very misleading. Sadly, many muesli bars that you would think are healthy have huge amounts of sugar.

That’s why I now try to avoid eating, as best I can, foods that are heavily processed.

Now, of course it’s hard to ignore all such products. But those that are closest to their natural form retain the most nutrients and contain the least additives.

Fresh fruit & vegetables and eggs are perfect examples.

And this philosophy supports my decision to give up added sugar completely and related products like chocolate.

But the same applies to cereal and bread where it’s much, much better to eat wholegrain varieties.

I’m sure I’ll feel a whole lot better for it.
