Day 11 - Write 31 Days

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.
