This week on Let's Get Real, host Erica Wides kicks off the show with a throw-back discussion on the designer jean trend that dates back to the disco era, complete with the pricey Jordache jeans and the Toughskins discount brand that featured the 'husky' size. [Erica laments which brand her parents endorsed.] Where's Erica going with this? She explains how she's stunned by the rising costs of food and quality ingredients. After the break, Erica goes on to relate a few family memories to the inflating costs of fruit, and in particular, how many fruits have fallen victim to being overly processed, such as the apple. The one fruit that has evaded becoming a Fruit By the Foot or Jellybean happens to be one of her favorites: the pear. Tune in to hear Erica's thoughts on real food versus its evil, processed twin. This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.
