I disagree. All food is not real food. Real food is nutrient-dense and not all food is. Why waste calories on foods that won't provide your body with the building blocks that it needs?
If a food item has a list of ingredients on it, most of the time I find myself tempted to put it back on the store shelf. If a food item has a lengthy and/or complicated list of ingredients, I will very, very rarely toss it into my grocery cart. There's just no reason for it most of the time. I pickle my own cucumbers. I make my own pasta sauce. I'm planning on experimenting with a few different recipes from mango sorbet this weekend. Most anything can be made from scratch.
Fast foods and processed foods have taken the fun out of cooking and there is much fun to be had in the kitchen. Home made meals can be 100% customized to meet different tastes and different restrictions/allergies. Home made food is made with love.
