No white refined sugar (Click here to read why)
No white bleached or unbleached flour or white rice- basically switching over to brown grains (Click here to read why)
No high fructose corn syrup in our house! (Click here to read why)
No chemicals/fillers/additives- with the purpose of trying to only eat "real food" (Pick any boxed food in your pantry and see if you actually know what every listed ingredient is and its purpose- if you don't- google it... I guarantee you will be surprised, and probably sickened.)
Also, check out this recent post on Yahoo Health about the hidden chemicals/additives in food.
And some new goals:
No canned veggies (unless they're BPA free) (Click here to read why- or google it yourself and find millions of sites about it)
Dining out limited to once a week (not only for health purposes, but also to allow more family time at home... and our bank account will appreciate it too!)
Another goal will be to slowly switch over to strictly organic produce and grass fed/organically raised meat. Hopefully, we will be completely switched over by the end of 2011, but this is something we still have a lot of research to conduct and with a baby coming in a few short months, I'm not sure how much time I will have to find the local hot spots and search for sales/bargains :).
