Engineered Food

"...all wholesome herbs God hath ordained for the constitution, nature, and use of man— Every herb in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season thereof; all these to be used with prudence and thanksgiving." Doctrine and Covenants 89:10-11

When we finally got serious about staying within our food budget, I found I needed to stop buying some of the snack foods we ate on a regular basis. It has turned out to be a good thing. While our diet is far from perfect, we eat fewer "easy" calories and we are more hungry for real, nutritious food.

Here is an interesting article I read from the New York Times that talks about the engineering that goes into some of the foods we buy. There is a reason these foods taste so good!... and are not good for us.
