    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...

    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...
