Are You Eating Fake Food?
Our society has grown up oblivious to what we consume as “food” for too long. Kelly the Kitchen Kop has made it her life’s work to help others transition away from fake, and into real food. It’s difficult when the largest food providers in our country take shortcuts for profit and pay a lot for confusing advertising to keep us buying the junk. Kelly recognizes this issue and is here to help us!
Part one of Real Food For Rookies is all about what to look for and what to avoid when buying food. It includes tips on label reading and a breakdown of important facts on all the major food groups, as well as, beverages and baby food! Kelly helps us navigate a grocery store like a pro and gives great suggestions on other places to purchase real foods, like farmers markets!
