Are you sure you really want to eat all the other stuff? What the heck are they?

I'm sure there will be other opinions on this.

Actually, in comparison to the junk I have been putting in my body for the past year. I don't mind. If you see the portions it can't be that much! But now I know what to look for! :)

Im a single Mom that leaves really early (630) leaves home very late (630) and earn o/t by working thru 1/2 my lunch. So I got to have quick and easy stuff for lunch bc I spend my mornings making part of dinner! Im a crockpot queen.

So I don't mind and really cant afford the time nor the $$ to buy the "fresh" stuff and make it...

Thank you for the information, I really do appreciate it! :^:

I was starting to get scared!

I do have to agree with honeybee though, if it's a choice between what's been going into the bod for years and this choice, well, it's the lesser of two evils, isn't it?
