When cooking with whole, fresh ingredients, there is no need to go overboard with extras. The food shines all on its own. Grocery stores are even picking up on this: my local Dominick's always offers free samples of different things, including fruit. Customers are invited to try pineapple or Cuties. Is this what we've come to? People don't know what real food not masked by unpronounceable names taste like so we need to bribed to eat right with free samples?
My diet is going more towards whole ingredients and less towards colorful packaged foods. There is less risk of cross-contamination (and much less label reading!) when purchasing ingredients. This means I'm spending a lot more time cooking. I still eat things out of a box or bag. My first year out of college, I only bought fresh meat twice that year. This past year, I only bought frozen meat twice. I feel much better eating this way! (And avoiding gluten and lactose helps, too!!)
