Of course, I encourage reducing processed foods and upping the fruits and veggies HOWEVER I am always asked by clients “Are there any good options out there?”

The answer is YES. I would be lying if I said I didn’t eat processed foods everyday. Nobody has the perfect diet and it’s OK.

Thank goodness, right? Many responsible food companies are doing their best to provide quality processed options for people on the go and who need quick sustainable options.

If you think about it almost all foods at the grocery store have been through some type of processing. Just because veggies have been flash frozen and bagged, doesn’t mean they are an unhealthy choice.
