Today is Day 11 of Write 31 Days – the daily writing challenge. My theme is “31 Days of Healthy Choices
Yesterday I wrote a bit about reading labels and watching out for sodium and sugar.
There are many so-called “healthy” foods that really aren’t healthy for you. By checking the labels, you can quickly see why not.
Here’s a list of foods that really aren’t that healthy.
Canned soups – too much sodium in most cases
Trail mix, granola – make your own!
Flavoured yogurt – too much sugar
Smoothies – watch out for added sugar
Gluten-free foods – really check the labels closely
Frozen diet dinners – too much sodium
Wheat bread – be sure it is 100% whole wheat
Fruit cocktail – better to heat fresh fruit
Check here to see more such foods and why they might not be such healthy choices.
