    How to read food labels and make healthier decisions when it comes to food!
    ⭐️If you do not know what an ingredient is, it is probably not good for you. Look up the ingredient to understand what it is!
    ⭐️ Ingredients are listed by quantity — from highest to lowest. So if first few ingredients are oil. sugar and not whole foods then I try to avoid them.
    ⭐️ Long ingredient list, more than 2-3 lines, means food is highly processed. I Avoid!
    ⭐️ Product dates are not safety dates and are not required by federal regulations except baby formula. I usually throw things out if I have had it sitting around for too long. .
    Toxins I try to avoid in food:
    ❌ hydrogenated oils
    ❌ High-fructose corn syrup
    ❌ Artificial colors (Red no. 40, Yellow no. 6, Blue nos. 1 and 2)
    ❌ Monosodium glutamate (MSG)
    ❌ Xantham Gum
    ❌ Sodium Benzoate
    ❌ Aspartame
    ❌ bromated flour
    ❌ BHA and BHT
