A chicken you have to cook yourself is more real than chicken nuggets or chicken from a can.The benefits of eating real food include minimizing the chemical additives that are linked to disease and obesity. These include artificial food coloring, preservatives and artificial flavours. Real food also has less sugar, sodium and added fat.

Here are 3 easy tips to start with: 

  • Shopping the perimeter of your grocery store is a good way to start eating clean, real foods. That's where the fresh produce, natural meats, eggs and dairy usually are. 
  • Make fruits and vegetables your go-to snacks. Keep a bowl of fresh fruit on the counter. Wash and chop veggies into sticks and pack them into baggies for easy grab-in-go.
  • For quit fast food, make extra portions of your main dinner entree to pack for lunch the next day. This easy habit will save you from eating processed meals at the local fast food joint.
