IDF part 2

# 3 “Avoid food products that make health claims”

This one seemed odd to me at first, but after I read a little more it made sense.  Instead of eating foods that have all kinds of things added to them to make them healthy, we should eat the whole foods that have those health benefits.

# 4 “Shop the periperies of the supermarket and stay out of the middle”

The middle is where all the processed things are.  We don’t stay out of it completely, but we try to buy most of our groceries from the produce and refrigerated sections.

# 5 Get out of the supermarket whenever possible”

We have been getting vegetables all summer from our CSA farm, and we have visited the local farmers market a couple of times as well.
