I was recently at the grocery store and passed a section that was labeled ‘Healthier Options’. I was intrigued, so I spent some time reading labels in that section. Every single item on the shelf was highly processed. Every single item was high in calories. Every single item was high carb, low protein, low fat. Every single item had high-fructose corn syrup. They all had oils that have been proven over and over to be disastrous for your health, like soybean oil, safflower oil, canola oil. Most had a long list of preservatives and colorings that I don’t even know how to pronounce. Compare the label of a typical granola bar or trail mix to that of a package of chocolate chip cookies. There’s not actually much difference. Just because a food claims to be ‘natural’, ‘healthy’, ‘organic’ or whatever does not make it so. Remember ‘100% Natural 7-Up’? Do you really believe that any part of 7-Up is natural? Geeze.
