When I saw that Organix were running a challenge to cut out junk that we feed our children I knew that I had to take part.
I am a firm believer in cooking meals from scratch. They are not only healthier for the family but you know what ingredients are going into the meal. I always find it concerning when I look at an ingredients list and see items which I have never heard of. I don't know if they are chemicals, preservatives, artificial additives, sweeteners, they really could be anything! They are ingredients that are certainly not found in a home kitchen. I was amazed by the huge list of ingredients that are used to make mass produced shop bought bread. I make bread using just 4 ingredients plus water! I like to know what my family are eating and what I am feeding my children.
It is not always easy to check the ingredients as you are shopping. Any parent will agree, when you go shopping with the kiddies, you want to go in, get what you need and get out before they get bored! Looking at ingredients is only gong to make your trip longer. This is why the government and food industry need to have tighter regulations regarding added salt, sugar, fats and artificial additives.
I am going to be sharing some easy recipes which can be made at home from scratch and that will please the whole family! They will contain No Junk ingredients, easy step by step instructions and will not cost a fortune to make! So keep an eye out for some delicious recipes and take the pledge with Organix!
