Fast Food Versus Good Food
It seems like I've posted online a lot lately about healthy food being cheaper than "fast food," but I get the feeling that many remain unconvinced. To illustrate, I'd like to share a purchase I made recently at my local grocery store. Here are the items I bought:

So I will be bringing blueberries, strawberries, and other wonderful real food to all the meals I attend.
Food Inspiration at the Market
I am trying to eat healthier but it's easier said than done. I am tiring of making the same salad over and over. When I go to assorted markets, I will snap photos of the salad aisle to give me inspiration on what different kinds of salads I could make or may like.
Add Butternut Squash to Frozen Dinners
Butternut squash is one of my favorites. I like to buy the ones you steam in the microwave, since they come in small packages. The other day, I was eating a small dinner, the type that comes in small packages, and I decided to scatter some of the butternut squash on top of the spaghetti.
Product Review: Sweet Leaf Stevia
This is the world's best-tasting stevia. My son even likes it. This all you need to sweeten your food. I use SweetLeaf in everything; baking cakes, cereal, coffee, tea, everything! I put it in a peach cake and was so good. It took 24 packets to add up to 1 cup of sugar. I always keep it on hand.
Combine Salmon Patty with Green Beans
I was at Food City and I decided to go to the deli and get a salmon patty. I felt I needed a side of vegetables, so I purchased green beans. I put them together, and surprisingly, they go really well together.

Buying Sugarfree Peanut Butter
On February 6, 2012 there was a piece about peanut butter. There was an editor note that said "Real peanut butter should only contain peanuts and salt. Be sure to check the ingredients of any brand you buy." Can anyone tell me the name of peanut butter that does not have any sugar?
