So I recently decided to change my relationship with food. I soon realized that this is way easier said than done. Apparently many of the foods I enjoy are created to kill people (I’m kidding but it does feel this way). Even foods that are labeled with healthy buzzwords such as organic, 100% ___, no GMOs, natural, enriched, (I could go on forever) can be bad. How am I ever going to figure all of this out? My plan now is to focus on incremental changes I can actually live with. After much research, I decided that my first goal is to avoid soy. I picked this goal after learning that soy can be potentially problematic for fertility which is something I have struggled with for a long time. It also sounded like an easy goal (I figured I am not a big soy eater so I should be able to avoid it). As I read the labels of foods I eat I soon learned that soy creeps up almost everywhere (often as soybean oil). I did notice that sometimes it is organic and sometimes it is not. Right now I really do not know much about organic food or how it is regulated but I plan to look at this later of course. I am starting to feel like going to the grocery store is similar to going on a treasure hunt. There are good things out there but they tend to be hidden. I will be sure to share the ‘treasures’ I find. I appreciate all comments, tips, and words of encouragement!
