“food”

Super-processed food accounts for nearly 60 per cent of an average American’s energy intake. It’s found in the center aisles of a supermarket, but it’s not real food and you can’t grow it in your vegetable garden.

(You do have a vegetable garden, right?)

    When my youngest son was in elementary school, I helped to get a school garden and garden club going at his school. It was really neat seeing the excitement on the kids’ faces as they learned how the veggies grew, and where they came from. Many of them were familiar with the produce already, but most had no idea about the plants or seeds that they started out as. The teacher who taught them also would prepare and share recipes with them as well. Those were​ some fun times!
