But I limit my consumption of them all roughly the same. The refined grains are something I've always eaten little of, so it's not as much on my mind. Same goes for salt and sugar, with the exception of a rare serving of sorbet. I never drink, so that isn't a problem, and I generally don't eat more than 1/4 cup red meat a day. But I think every option on the poll is very important, and I would have chooses most of them if I could have. Follow a balanced, wholesome diet-- live well!

I am a subscriber. I tried to download the potluck recipes. Apparently you have a password of which I am unaware. I will NOT go to facebook to access this information, nor will I renew my subscription if this is the way you work. I value my privacy and had hoped you did also. Joan Bodkin

We have cut processed foods from our diet (my husbands endocrinologist is elated). We also try to avoid anything with high sodium, high in saturated fats and high sugar content.

I don't TRY, I DO avoid them all including dairy.

SALT.......There is no reason for so much salt to be in everything we buy.

Avoid unnecessary Sugar. Avoid Artificial Sweeteners. Avoid Sodas. Drink water and unsweetened tea and coffee. Instead of buying an iced latte, buy an iced black coffee and add just low fat or fat free milk or half and half or don't add any. If you like half and half or heavy creams for coffee, pasta sauces or gravy, try fat free half and half, extra creamy from Land O Lake. Eat any veggies and fruits that you can. Frozen, canned, whatever. Just do it! :-) Ooohhh...and skip white bread. Get one with lots of grains. Makes amazing sandwiches, toasted or cold. If you want a good meal but not a lot of fat and calories, make a TOASTED/panini sandwich (I use my George Foreman Grill). Toasting makes a big difference when it comes to having a good sandwich or a great sandwich for a meal! Add some pickles and roasted veggies on the side for some good sidekicks.
