“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

There's No Place Like Home ...

... said while clicking my ruby red heels three times.


It's very difficult to be away from home and keep any semblance of a good diet routine.  The past week I've had to decide whether to go a little hungry ... or limit my food choices to the least offensive health wise .. and all the while wanting to get back home to the comfort of my kitchen, freezer .. and pantry.  There really are few places to eat that serve nutritious foods when in a strange city.  I tried to stick with fresh fruits, eggs, veggies, whole grain crackers, hummus, water and coffee.  And not wanting to be anti-family-food have shared some meals with family members.  Two days ago it was necessary to take  a Claritin allergy tablet .. this after being free from them for a month or two.  This trip has only confirmed and OPENED our eyes to how the entire food system has been monkeyed into one big-fat-fake-food society.

I also love the "big-fat-fake-food society" reference! lol

When we travel where we need a meal, we are strictly take-our-own. When we travel across country in our RV, we bring our own food and use the kitchen to cook. It's just-like-home-on-wheels in our RV. ;-)

I am honestly surprised that some things are even called "food", but with immune disorders and allergies continuing on the rise, we should be more careful with everything we consume. You are really on the right track. Your husband's grocery store choices, though, are SO bad! Leave the man at home next time! lol
