This is one of my favorite food quotes, so much wisdom in just a few simple words. Convenience foods are exactly what their name says they are; convenient. They are so easy when you are hungry and tired, grab a package and go! The problem is, with a package usually comes a price. Most packaged convenience foods are heavily processed and contain additives, chemicals, food dyes and preservatives to make the food taste good and to preserve its shelf life.
