There's more to life than eating rice cakes and distilled water.
Since we are a community of foodies, we know we can produce our own foods in a healthier manner.
As for us, we haven't purchased commercially produced breads in too many years to count. And those of you who think it's not possible...it is. I press my bread machine into service to do all the kneading and the first rise for our loaf bread, sandwich bread, hamburger/hot dog buns, toasting bread, Italian bread, French baguettes, etc. I also make all our English muffins and bagels. And, don't forget, N.Y. Times bread.
I make all our own tomato sauces and other vegetable dishes. We almost exclusively use olive oil in cooking and incorporate canola oil in other dishes. And, oh, we use REAL butter occasionally.
I'm not saying our household is the "ideal" world, but I've been cooking like this for too many years to count.
Our children didn't grow up on fast food and junk food. We never had chips and empty-calorie snacks in our house and our 5 children turned out quite well. Two of our sons are over 6' 6" tall, so I guess the veggies stood them in good stead.
As an explanation to my comments, let me assure you, we were not "mother earth" parents. We were cheap ones. We did the best to stretch our food dollars in a way that filled up our brood in a healthy way.
That's not to say we can't enjoy some of the "goodies" in moderation. Just not every meal, every day.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
