The Dangers of HFCS

I have read a lot about high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and how bad it is for your health. Lindsey at Enjoy the Journey did a series recently on eating healthier. She spent a little time addressing the HFCS issue. Most recently though I read this article at the Weston A Price Foundation and it really has inspired me to try to eliminate most HFCS out of our diets.

I have been trying to get a hold of our eating habits as it is. We use to eat a bit healthier but slowly over the course of a few years we have really let things slip. I have a grain mill and use to make all our bread but haven't done that in a long time. I still do grind my flour for all other baking, but haven't made bread in quite awhile. As my life has gotten busier with so many little ones and a husband at home I have resorted to a lot of convenient not so healthy food choices. I think its time to start pulling things back towards the other direction.

Sadly, we've let our good habits slip into worse habits lately, too. Funny how a new baby can turn an entire life upside down and inside out! He'll be a year old soon and I'm just now beginning to get back into the regular better habits. I have a long way to go!
