What's the difference between a frozen processed packaged "healthy" meal and a home cooked meal made from fresh locally grown, organic produce and meat? Well, that's a loaded question. Many eye-opening books have been written on this subject. I could quote Gandhi, Drew Carey, or any one of the hundreds of experts on the subject. Of course, each source has something different to say about it. I attended a yoga and raw foods retreat years ago when I adopted my own opinion which is: your body will get more nourishment from food when the food is grown naturally and is eaten immediately after it is harvested with as little processing as possible.
