Have you looked around your grocery store lately? It's really amazing how much junk is crammed into those 8 or 12 or 20 aisles. Maybe I'm just getting a little cynical from watching food documentaries that call out big food corporations and the government for setting up a system that encourages the creation of this aforementioned junk and thus, obesity. Maybe I've just started looking around for the first time in years. I can honestly commend food corporations for finding ways to create and brand slightly unique forms of corn and corn products and the worst part is, we eat it up. Literally.
So it's no wonder that being healthy is so difficult. We are literally face-to-face with the "enemy" everywhere we go. Unhealthy food is plentiful and unfortunately, less expensive than the good stuff. This might not be an option for everyone, but I found that I have (unintentionally) started doing most of my grocery shopping at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods where I know that my processed, canned and frozen options are at least slightly better than those found at my local grocery store. I'd love to hear what others do to combat this huge disadvantage that has been forced on us consumers.
