Just in the past few days I have found out that I have been buying foods that I assumed were good, but finally read the ingredient list and found I was wrong.
What are these foods?
~The first is the choice of bread. I knew to look for bread that said "100% Whole Wheat" and if it doesn't say 100% then it's no good. Well, looking at the ingredient list I see third on the list, "High Fructose Corn Syrup"!!! Yikes! Thank goodness there is a brand that is proud to have on the front of their product, "NO HFCS" and is 100% whole wheat. Now I will only buy "Orowheat' brand bread.
~Second food is yogurt. Once again, I knew to look for yogurt that has live cultures, which helps with your digestion system and keeps your pH balanced. I was always buying fat free "Yoplait" yogurt. I finally checked out the ingredient list and once again I found those horrible words, "High Fructose Corn Syrup"! WTH!!! Now I am on the lookout for yogurt that does not have that crap in it, but does have live cultures. Greek yogurt is great, but is lacking the cultures. When I find it, I will pass the info along :)
EDIT: I just found that "Greek" yogurt does have live cultures so now I'm happy and not searching anymore :)
~A good thing I just found out last night...you can buy "Retro Pepsi" or "Throw-back Pepsi" for a limited time. These products are the best IF you drink soda. They are made the same way they used to be prepared back in the day...with sugar! Yep, this is a healthier soda and even though I'm not a soda drinker, I hope it stays!
