Confessions of a Recovering Food Addict
The garden is my favorite place to spend my time. Seeing it each day filled with beautiful fresh vegetables is exciting. That reality has not always been the case. Several years ago I was much more likely to spend my time at the fast food places filling my stomach with fries and milk shakes or sitting in front of the TV snacking. I was a junk food junkie and my palate wanted nothing of real food. I was addicted processed carb's and fried foods. Through a 12 step program and a great deal of research on eating real food I came to understand my life depended upon eating fresh whole food. I have been transformed by a diet of real food straight from the garden. I lost 100 pounds and I have maintained that for over 4 years. The best of it is how great I feel every day, Real food is real life.
