Why Should You Quit Eating Processed Food?
Eating truly healthy food can be especially challenging these days. How do I know? Well, for over fifteen years I worked as a processed food marketer for some of the largest food companies in the world.
While it took me some time away from the industry to realize it, now I honestly believe that your average person doesn’t stand a chance against Big Food’s deceptive marketing tactics and addictive, cheap products. Unfortunately, for the first time in human civilization, life expectancies are predicted to decline, and it’s directly linked to the poor quality, highly processed foods so many of us eat.
How can you change this? The answer is simple yet hard—quit eating processed food!
My Mission: To Help People Live Happier, Healthier Lives
As one of the only former Big Food executives speaking out I’ve made it my personal mission to call the food industry out on its lies and make a difference in this crazy, mixed-up world. My real food journey started with my book, this blog, and my interview Confessions of a former Big Food executive.
Now more than ever I’m committed to reveal the truth and help people out with tips, tools, and recipes to live happier, healthier lives. Making the transition to eating REAL food can be challenging, so we’re here to help you out!
That said I’d be dishonest if I pretended we eat perfectly in our household (does such a thing even exist? and should it really be the goal?). Although I’ve come a long way since being addicted to soda, I’ve decided it’s more about doing our best. Do we slip up? Sure! Am I guilty of enjoying a mocha at our local coffee shop? Yep! But overall my family has developed consistently healthier habits that make occasional indulgences okay.

Interested in clean eating to see if it helps with asthma allergies that run in our family.
Thanks for visiting our site and for your comment.
Clean eating can be a great way to help deal with allergies. Getting rid of most if not all the additives that are in processed foods can be a huge help. That said, if you’re still experiencing problems with allergies after you’ve been eating real food for a while, you may want to start removing certain types of foods from your diet (dairy, wheat, etc.) one by one to see if that alleviates the problem.
Our website focuses on eating real food and minimizing processed foods in your diet as much as possible. I definitely think that’s a great first step that can help your health period. Hopefully it will also alleviate the allergy problems you and your family are experiencing.
Thanks again for checking out our site.
I am so excited to find your blog!! I found it looking up healthy homemade salad dressing recipes! I have been preaching out against processed foods to friends and family for so long and it was not always easy to find others to share in my passion! I look forward to learning more about your quest and getting involved in a community where others feel the same! I am becoming more and more of an advocate of clean eating, so much that my 10 month old grand daughter has yet to eat any processed food, not jarred baby food, nothing! I have made all her food from nothing but whole foods!! Cheers to clean, healthy eating!!
Thanks so much for your comment. I’m so glad you found my blog as well. Kudos to you for helping your grand-daughter eat so healthy. What a special gift!
I look forward to seeing you around on the blog!
How I lived to be 62, soon 63, I’ll never know considering the processed foods I have ingested for years. Maybe I built up an immunity! Anyway, I do want to make the rest of my life a pleasure not a degenerative burden to the planet. Thanks for your help!
Thanks for your comment. So glad you found my site and about your successful move to cut out processed foods from your diet. I look forward to seeing you comment on more posts!
I can’t wait to absorb all of this info and start using it.
JUST READ THE INGREDIENTS LABELS!! I am a big label reader of foods’ ingredients, & all products labels’ ingredients in general. I think if everyone took a quick read at the ingredients in foods, they will be shocked, but informed, & left wondering about all the strange additives that many food manufacturers are including in everyday foods.
Also, thanks for exquisite recipe for homemade Italian salad dressing recipe.
Hi Carolina. I couldn’t agree more. Reading ingredient labels educates you! And .. so glad you enjoy my Italian salad dressing recipe. It’s one of my favorites too!
