Simple foods Wed, Dec 22, 2010
I've recently become a fan of simple foods, i.e. processed foods with few or simple ingredients.  Skippy Natural Peanut Butter has the following list of ingredients:  Roasted Peanuts, Sugar, Palm Oil, Salt.  Land O' Lakes Butter with Olive Oil is made of the following:  Sweet Cream, Olive Oil, Salt.  Those are all things I can understand without researching them on the internet.  There's no potassium chloride or xanthan gum, or any of the other millions of food additives with complicated names that may or may not cause limb loss and brain seepage.  I try to stay away from the "chemicals are scary" mindset; I realize most things have a complicated chemical name (dihydrogen monoxide, i.e. water) and many chemicals are benign or even beneficial.  And of course just because something is made from non-processed ingredients doesn't make it healthy.  But I guess I get a little peace of mind knowing my food was grown in the dirt, cleaned up, and essentially sold to me as is. #food
