What is real food?

Real food is food that is found in nature; growing and living on a farm, in the forest, grasslands, ocean, rivers, lakes or in your backyard garden. It is food that is close to its natural state as possible, and is full of nutrients. It is a whole food that nourishes and fuels our bodies.

Real food is whole, unprocessed (or minimally processed) and we recognize exactly where it came from. Real food has not been altered, refined, nor processed. Nothing has been stripped away and no chemical or artificial ingredients have been added. It doesn’t need a package or a label because it contains ONE ingredient! Real food has no ingredients list; they are the ingredients.

Real food can be hunted, caught, gathered or picked in the wild, it can be naturally grown in a garden or on a farm. Some foods that can be hunted are beef, bison, pork chicken, turkey, duck, pheasant, rabbit, quail, wild game, fish seafood eggs. Others can be grown or gathered such as vegetables, flowers, fruits, leaves, seeds, nuts, seeds, and berries.

So the next time you’re hungry, think of cooking with whole foods. They’re nutritious satiating and healthy for you.
