What do I mean by real food? Simply, to me it is food that you can pick off a plant, either in or on the ground, pick from a tree, fish from the seas or rivers, has been raised in a paddock and hunted. In other words you know exactly what it is you are eating. It is not purchased in a packet, a jar or a can from the supermarket.
I guess the interest in real or whole food stems from childhood when my dad had an amazing vegetable garden, grew most of our fruit and was a keen fisherman. As far as I remember we were quite a typical family back in the 50s. Most people had large vegetable gardens then.

There is a lot of interest in more wholesome food these days. Often for health reasons - which of course are pertinent. I think it's one of those unusual things where 'what's good for you' actually tastes *better*. I certainly enjoy growing vegies and then picking them as we cook. When 'what's on your plate' was growing half an hour ago 'it has to be good for you'. ?
