This is about responsible eating.

You are not  “a covered-dish” person, you avoid picnics with near-strangers, you’ve always left community activism to others,  you never entertain and you don’t “do gardening.”

However, your eating habits have worried you for a long time. In fact, it bothers you more than you care to admit. This is on top of an emotional, professional load already bordering on dangerous. In addition, you eat too much fast food, have indigestion far too often, and any “dieting” attempts tend to make you heavier. You don’t even get enough sleep  each night!

You do know quite a lot about the good eating. You simply don’t bother to deal with it. What if you did take control? You could go to a health market once a week and plan to eat only what you brought home from there.

Get tough with yourself!



High-fiber, unsweetened dry cereal

Fresh fruit

Skim milk


Salad ingredients

Wheat pasta

Brown rice

Grainy bread

Fresh veggies

Meat (not a lot)

Olive oil

Fresh lemons

Peanut Butter

Trail Mix


Dark chocolate

Sesame crackers

Herbal tea

By doing this, you will be avoiding excessive sugars, salt and fat. This also means you are not ingesting a lot of unnecessary thickeners, stabilizers, bacteria preventatives, fungi eliminators, humectants, glazing agents, flavor enhancers, artificial flavoring, color retainers, acidity regulators, emulsifiers, bulking agents, anti-foamers, preservatives, anticaking agents, acid regulators and many pesticide residuals.

For sure, you’re on a start. You’ve also avoided pointless meetings, picnics, recruiting, a lot of people’s brag stories and best of all, no more disgusting nitrates slimily stuck up against chemically-soaked lettuce mushed against very substanceless  buns. Too many restaurants have no problem serving plastic-looking, yucky-gummy substances –nothing appetizing.

It will be too long a time before the entire world wants their food this chemical-free way, but many have started, and it’s pretty certain the number will increase tremendously. You are on your way!

You have very little to lose.

Cheers and ciao!

About Marty Martindale

Foodsite Magazine and Marty aim to help the cooking-challenged avoid dependence on others due to lack of cooking knowhow. We concentrate on quick breakfasts, portable lunches and “good-4-u” night meals. With readily available web translation, the magazine explains separate foods, a little of their history, their nutrition, suggested “go-withs,” serving ideas and links to foodsites with recipes.
