Real food isn’t complicated and was never intended to be.
“Real Food” has become a trendy and popular term used lately to describe food that has not been processed or modified from its original state. However, what we find at the grocery stores today, which is produced by big corporations, is actually not food at all. It’s imitation food or what we refer to as “Frankenfood.”
Real food is not:
- Food that sits on a shelf for years and is still edible.
- Refined and striped of it’s nutrients.
- Man-made in a lab and contains ingredients that you can’t pronounce.
