Yove heard me gripe and groan in the past about 'real' food vs 'fake' food. I've gone on at length about my desire to feed my family nothing but wholesome natural and unprocessed food. Its better for me. For my family. For the environment.
And I can't afford it.
At least not to the extent that I want to take it. My yard tested high for lead, so until its replaced, I don't get my monster garden. Or anything really that I can't grow in an container. So... suck 1. I won't have saturdays off for at least 2 months, so the multiple farmers markets in the area are all off. Suck 2. As for non-grown, yet still wholesome food? The older won't eat anything but Mac n cheese, and the younger will only eat hot dogs and yogurt. Suck 3. Buying food that at LEAST is free of hfc's? Too danm expensive. A little box of the 'natural' grahm bunnies is almost 4 bucks. The monster 2lb package of animal crackers that proudly proclaims its hfcs? A dollar something. Yeah, I bought monster bag.
Eating healthy 100% of the time costs too much. And even if i get the 'good stuff', there's no warranty stating that its really GOOD stuff.
So in an effort to (not annoy my hubby and children) get a little more balance in out food, I'm not going to freak out if we don't always eat the best. I'm going to try yes. But I'm not going to best myself up if it doesn't happen. Yes, Bubby is currently eating the animal-crackers-of-the-danmed. But he also eats organic yogurt. So, ya know, it balances out.
