    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...

    Can't Seem To Give-up...

    Ranch dressing.  I have given-up on the shelf-stable bottled variety, but I love my Naturally Fresh Lite Ranch.  It is made with mostly real, identifiable ingredients (real dairy, eggs, etc.), but it contains partially hydrogenated oil and monosodium glutamate.  I give the...

    Out With Processed, In With Homemade Dinners

    Starting Today...

    The fact that many, if not most, of the food items you can buy at a supermarket contain "non-food" ingredients is nothing new. Preservatives, colours, stabilisers, emulsifiers, colour fixatives, bulking agents, humectants, anti-caking agents, anti-foaming agents, acidity...

    Health Claims On Junk Foods Are Dangerous

    Health claims on junk foods are dangerous because people believe the claims and then mistake the product for "healthy" or even for "real food." These are some of my favorite ridiculous health claims on food items.  All of these items are in my kitchen right now because my...

    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...
