Food Culture

The Western food culture is the only food culture in the world that directly links to high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes 2. Our food culture is comprised of highly processed foods. The key to making changes in our food choices is redefining what food is. Real food is not packaged. Real food can be found on the perimeter of the super market. I am talking about fruits, vegetables, legumes, unprocessed dairy products, unprocessed poultry and unprocessed meat.

The only way to know exactly what is in your food and how it has been processed is if you cook it yourself!

Each of us has at least one friend, a roommate or a mother who knows how to cook. We also have a handy thing called the internet. Use these tools to learn some new tricks in the kitchen.
