Though I know I can't make everything from scratch, I have become more cognizant about what is in those convenience foods that I have to resort to at times.
Something our family is trying to avoid as much as possible is artificial coloring. Specifically the reds, blues, greens and yellows. I am shocked at what foods have colors put in as an ingediant. White marshmallows have the color blue added. This can of biscuits have both red and blue added.
Thanks to Pinterest I have found some easy ways to make homemade busy-night friendly. I made freezer biscuits tonight which I will freeze and pull out individually and make as needed. It makes much more sense (and less wasteful) to do this then make a can of 8 or 10 when the kids would like 1 biscuit for breakfast.
