Cheese Omelet – A Square pocket omelet

Home Made Cooking

Is there anything more basic than an Omelet? Probably, but omelet is the easiest solution I know for lunch, breakfast and sometimes, even dinner.

I came home for a lunch break and had zero time to make some food before I leave back to work so I made myself a sandwich. But, how do you make an omelet that fits right between to slices of bread? You make it a square omelet of course. Read More

Whole wheat Pizza

Baked Goodies | Home Made Cooking

A few years ago my husband and I decided to start eating healthier. Goat milk products, no food colorings and additives, eat whole grains and lots of fruit, veggies and fibers. Sound boring and not too tasty right? That’s what I thought. I know that deep inside we all know how junk food is bad for us and yet, we still eat it from time to time. Read More

Food additives, colors and other junk

Tips and News

I used to buy anything that looked good, really! candies, cakes, ice creams, juices…everything, but since I became a mom I also became much more aware of the fact that not every bag of chips that states that it has “No artificial flavors” is actually good for you.

Unfortunately, these days it’s harder to find food that has nothing artificial in it as most of the foods do. But you can be a smart shopper and do yourself and your family a huge favor. By choosing your food wisely and by reading the labels carefully you can actually help your child focus for example, or help yourself minimize stomach aches and mainly help your family eat healthy.

The food additives are not always mentioned clearly on the food label.  A lot of times you’ll see the E letter and then a number right next to it. these are codes that stand for the food additive or colors that were added to that specific food.

I used to have a table of all the additives and the E numbers on my fridge. When I went searching for one online a few days ago I noticed the list has grown 🙁

I see all those beautiful cake decorations and baked goods and frosting and sweets, and they are all filled with colors and I ask myself “Why?”, why feed a child with this when you can substitute it with natural ingredients?

I’m planning on posting a list of substitutes for colors soon so stay tuned.

I the meantime I’m attaching a list of the E numbers for you to have at home and pay attention closely to what you eat.

Live well and prosper! 🙂

Here’s the list I mentioned: Food Additives
