The 2% Rule

In order to make this process a little easier I implemented the “2% Rule” on dairy products.  I’ve been using this rule ever since I stopped eating High Fructose Corn Syrup.  I’ve blogged elsewhere about HFCS, but maybe I’ll dig that up and repost it here.  Anyway, the rule is I’m okay with eating a product if there is a banned ingredient (in this case dairy) listed in the ingredient list after the phrase “contains less than 2% of the following:”  This just makes it a little easier on me because occasionally I’m going to eat prepackaged foods, and chances are they will contain something from my growing list of banned foods.  Ultimately I’d like to get away from factory foods altogether, but I’m a long way off from accomplishing that.  I need a giant garden, and I need to spend more time hunting.  Short entry today, that’s all I have to say.
