Do you try to avoid aspartame, GMOs and other chemicals in your diet? What are your tips?
I eat organic food that makes me feel more nourished than lesser amount of non organic foods. I also try to grow own herbs and vegetables or I buy in stores other than supermarkets where I feel the foods might be organic anyway. Over the years, I have a good idea of how to eat economically but mainly organic. In the long run, I am healthier.
I do try to avoid aspartame, though it's hard since it's in gum. The main food I avoid is high fructose corn syrup. I always check labels and almost never buy food with this chemically modified product in it. I also cut out diet soda and drink green tea now. Like Delila1 I grow my own herbs. And now the season is almost here for farmer's markets!
Yes, I do by best to avoid as many chemicals as possible. Organic foods and those that are closest to their natural state are the best. In addition to diet, I also choose organic beauty products like shampoo, toothpaste, and soap. Moreover, we do not put pesticide on our lawn or introduce anything into the air or water that could have an averse effect on the planet (and on us)!
Absolutely, those substances are pure poison. I would suggest you transition slowly, picking the relatively easier items to swap out first.
Work toward making more meals from scratch rather than from a box. Every week or so, you could target working primarily with one category- pasta dishes, vegetables, etc. A good, old Betty Crocker cookbook can teach you everything you need to know about cooking methods, or try Community Education classes if you have them in your area.
Best wishes to you; it's good to make such changes as you will definitely benefit from them.
I like your idea of focusing on one food category each week. I think this will be a good way for me to start. I think I will try your suggestion of starting w/ easy swaps and then building up - less frustration. My first swap is fororganic yogurt.
