    My Almonds Contain What?!?!

    I avoid heavily processed foods and foods which contain chemicals. The other day, I bought Emerald Brand Dry Roasted Almonds as a treat for myself (on sale + I had a coupon). I've been trying not to eat them all at once because I LOVE almonds, and they are delicious. As I was...

    Should Be Illegal

    So much food is processed so bad I don't know how they can get away with even calling it food. It's all chemicals, dyes, sweeteners, the only real food is the extreme amount of salt added to it. Something like a Oreo is so insane in the nutrition value being all sugar and fat. A...
