Here's a few things I've learned from doing a little reading about "all-natural" foods:
The term "all-natural" can mean anything, the term has no nutritional value, and isn't even regulated by the FDA.
"A "natural" product can be virtually anything -- genetically modified, full of pesticides, made with corn syrup, additives, preservatives and artificial ingredients"
Most all-natural products are heavily processed.
All natural doesn't mean that all the ingredients are all natural. In fact, usually it's quite the opposite.
And many, many more facts that are sort of shocking. I'm not here to get on a soap box, but I am here to tell you to please be aware of what you are buying. Look at the ingredients lists and read up on which ones to stay away from. Educate yourself on food products. But don't feel guilty if you buy a pack of hot dogs or lunchables, or even a frozen pizza every now and then.
With that being said, its time for my weekly menu. This week it's a little different because there are a few extra days in this week's menu (and we have a lot of chicken to use up):
Easy dinner night
Tilapia with rice in pesto sauce
Spaghetti with local beef and homemade breadsticks
Chicken Noodle soup
Pork stir fry
We're having some friends over, so I'm cooking chili
Cheese & bean quesadillas
