Recipes for SIMPLE “Additive-Free” Eating

As you may already know, I am highly sensitive to chemicals and food additives (they REALLY jacked up my health big time – you can read more here if you’d like).

So now I prepare all of my own meals at home from ingredients that come from nature. And, as long as I keep my diet additive-free, I feel absolutely fine! Yay!

Seven years ago when I was suffering with Fibromyalgia, I was living on frozen dinners, diet soda and fast food….so I totally understand when people feel overwhelmed at the idea of starting to make their own food. But I really want everyone to know that it really doesn’t have to be complicated…and you don’t have to make exotic dishes with obscure ingredient! You can still enjoy simple, standard American dishes!


Homemade Enchiladas

Sure, if I want to eat enchiladas or something else that’s complicated, then I’m gonna have to spend a good chunk of my time in the kitchen. But most of the time, I have other things I’d rather be doing than cooking, so I eat much more simply most of the time.

Below are 10 of my favorite simple ideas and recipes to get you started if you’d like to try out some additive-free meals without spending all day in the kitchen!

  1. Hello I was just wondering . If you have ever thought of the chemicals they spray on vegetables to keep them fresh longer like bagged lettuce, kale, broccoli, ???? I live in Pennsylvania so in the winter 99% of vegetables are shipped from callifornia or other country’s apples that are at the local grocery store are kept in an air tight building and sprayed with chemicals to keep them fresh an apple can last up to a year and yet people think they are eating healthy we are being killed
