Ok, so I am all about trying to feed our family as cheaply and heathily as I can. There are times when I can get just so overwhelmed by the news out there and reading so many things that going to the store and trying to stay under budget and buy things that aren’t going to cause me cancer make my head want to explode and then today I read this article on msn.
Here are the top 12 things we should not have in our food. Some of them I have been trying hard to eliminate and others it seems virtually impossible if you want to make your 4 year old at least a little happy with the food your bring home (and your 30 something husband too). Please tell me if you eliminate these things what else is there to eat (and does anyone have any money to loan me for my whole food and organic groceries???) 🙂
nitrates (deli meat, bacon etc)
blue 1, 2; red 3; green 3; yellow 6
olestra (do they still make things with this?)
potassium bromate (supposed to be almost illegal)
sodium chloride (aka salt)
*On another note. Thanks to all for the sweet comments on the last post. I tell you that it is amazing what happens when we are willing to be open and honest…you realize that you are not the only one out there who feels like you do.
