    A croissant is pretty bad, and I could see some people justifying that to themselves as "breads & grains". lol I think the key is what you do 80-90% of the time, not 100%.

    Sorry - this made me laugh a little

    As a child we lived with my grandparents and great grandparents.

    No-one in their right mind would eat like my great- grandparents much less my great-grandfather....

    It's not saying you have to eat like them. It's saying don't eat anything they wouldn't recognise as food. e.g. If they saw a head of broccoli they would know that is food. If they saw a pop tart, they would probably wonder what it is and what you do with it. Or perhaps it depends how old you are. ;-)

    I find 'clean eating' to be a bit of a buzz word for healthy eating.

    I don't know about anyone else's grandparents but boy they ate some gross stuff. I remember my pa had a bucket of congealed animal fat in a bucket on the BBQ. Eww. And they ate a ton of sugar.

    Going off track - my great grandfather 'saw' carp, hares and green lamb as food (you know, you carve of the green bits for the dog and curried the rest).

    He never 'saw' broccoli and believed food was edible once coated in a fine sheen of salt. Weavils made great fish bait and could be sieved out of flour...

    I know this is a total off track, it just made me giggle

    LOL, unless the pop tart was suspended in jelly my grandmother in law (97) puts everything in jelly. I wouldn't eat like her meals consist of fried fish/sausages/chops and chips with a sorry looking grated carrot, cabbage and sweetcorn salad, then something-in-jelly for dessert. MIL has to hide things like ginger when she cooks with it, as her mum refuses to believe it's edible. I do get what you mean, though.

    My gp told me three years ago "go back to the cave times, eat how they ate" meanong exactly what everyone is saying, if it doesnt grow from the ground or walk the earth dont eat it.

    I said " pretty sure woolies dont have any sabretooth tiger in the meat dept" lol

    He shook his head. The right idea is there, just depends how literal you take it

    Its definitely nothing new. The body/gut was never designed to break down down and absorb preservatives and all that crap.

    haha Sounds interesting. My great-grandparents were long dead before I was born. It's not my saying by the way - I was just quoting a very commonly used expression.

    Yuck - I wouldn't want to eat at her house. My grandma (the Aussie one) ate such boring, bland, over-cooked food. Cack.
