Some quick advice for the day (and truly, the rest of your life):
Read Ingredients on every food product you buy:
Many people, when reading food labels, stop at the front of the product. Words and wording such as these entice the person to buy without further investigation into the products real ingredients:
- All Natural
- 100% Natural
- Cholesterol Free
- Fat Free
- Whole Grain
- Whole Wheat
Blah, Blah, Blah... These words can mean absolutely nothing. For Example: Whole wheat just means there might be a dusting of whole wheat in the product AND the rest of the ingredients could be pure garbage: fillers, sugars, dough conditioners, artificial this and that...
Here is an example of a "Whole Wheat" bread label:
I can honestly say I would not eat this bread even if I was really hungry. This is even putting the gluten issue aside. Seriously, what are all those chemicals and why are they in bread for God's sake? Food should be pure, natural ingredients meant for nourishing each and every body cell. If this is not what is in the "product," opt to stand up for your health and place the item back on the shelf.
Use this thought process and label investigative work with every food item you do not make:
- at home
- from scratch
- with local, well-raised ingredients
Eat well, your health and very life depends on it! Hugs, Paula
PS Use this label investigative technique with all body care products, cosmetics, household cleaners, everything you buy. Your health and the earth's health depend on truly natural choices in living.
