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
