Reading Food Labels 101

If it has a label then don’t eat it! I won’t stop there but it is about that simple.  Processed foods are not whole foods.  The longer the list of ingredients, the further you should stay away.

These are some of the words that should send you running:

Artificial  (anything)
High fructose corn syrup
Artificial sweeteners
Ammonium sulfate
Carminic acid (crushed bug parts)
Sodium benzoate
Ammonium sulfate (fertilizer)
Refined grains
Shellac (more bug parts)
Castoreum (beaver anal glands)
Gum base (from sheep)
L-cystine (hair or duck feathers)
MSG
Olestra
LOW FAT
Sugar (there are about 400 different names for sugar…that is a whole other blog!)
Bleached white flour
Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil / Hydrogenated Soybean Oil

Things you should eat:

Almost anything in the produce section!  Whole Foods!

Be Healthy,
