I couldn't have said it better myself (so I didn't)

I think it is fitting to end a series of real food posts with a reality check.  I think that real food is important, but I know that it can get out of hand.  These blog posts already say what I feel in my heart.  I hope that if you need encouragement keeping real food in balance with the rest of life that you will find some in these posts!

  1. Thanks for the post and link up today! People really do get out of hand. The world we live in, and the iformation out there, it is incredible. Media overload, I think that is going to kill us faster than our food.

    I am currently working on a post about food disconnect. This post has given me some more inspiration.

    For me real food is real simple. People just don't get that. They really overthink it all. I hope that I can help people to really rethink their connection to food, and not worry so much about all the details.

    1. Had to laugh when you said that media overload would kill us faster than our food! :)

  2. These are great posts and great reminders about how important it is to put food in perspective. For those of us who are still relatively new to the world of real food, it's so easy to get caught up with the overload of information and get carried away. Moderation and balance are so important when it comes to food (and so easy to forget too sometimes!)
