It's funny, but I'm getting to a point where I don't think "processed" food is the root of all evil. Once I realized we didn't have a decent definition of it and it could encompass everything from Gatorade to mac & cheese to pork rinds to bacon, I started to re-think. Just because someone else has made it for you, is it inherently bad? I don't think so.

What I think is bad is the ingredients in a lot of those foods and we need to start making a distinction. Tons of sugar? Bad. Excess carbs? Bad. Chemical preservatives? Bad. Wheat and gluten? Bad for some people period, bad in excess for everyone. Bacon? Not bad.
