Real Food: Harder to Find Than You Think (Infographic)

Does your food look real? Does it taste real? Okay. But is it actually real? We all know the difference between a spring salad and a microwave burrito, but even lean chicken, “fresh” produce and vibrant fruit can be disguised. Take a look at how real food has been manipulated in a way that’s invisible to the naked eye.

I rarely eat in restaurants and shop at a store that use local farmers--- also shop farmer's markets. This infographic is scary. Thank you for the information.

Just cut 5 gallon bucket of Roma green beans from our garden last night to can today....will pick more today while the pressure cooker cools. Grew them ourselves so we know it is real food!

I save the rain water from my roof for the garden. I bought a kit to connect to the downpipe and a linking kit to connect 2 water butts, I set this system up during water cuts in a summer drought a few years ago.. I have plenty of water should it ever stop raining here in the UK.Lol.

.Having lived in one for 20 years already and with global warming no longer a theory but a sad consequence of 7 billion people being selfish, I will surround myself with native plants, fruit trees that produce, A pyramid for the vegetables to conserve water and and optimize the yield,perennial veggies like runner beans,asparagus,and artichoke around the yard as a decorative addition,And avocados. I haven't used any pesticide in all these years so why start now? And just in case-I'll want a set of rain Barrels..
