|If you know me... you know this... I love McDonald's. I eat lots of fast food. I love chicken fingers and diet coke. My fav: the two cheeseburger meal=) ahhh.|
- Sugars: If you haven't seen the recent on sugar... you should. I've done a lap around the grocery store and sugar really is in EVERYTHING. It's crazy. Faith's advice: sweeten with legit maple syrup and local honey. If you're diabetic... try Stevia and Xylitol... it's not perfect but apparently better. And the real butt kicker... Faith told me sugar helps cause wrinkles... omg. this is reason enough to stop, right?! ahaha.
- Fats: Don't do the fake stuff. Faith posted the above picture the other day.... notice the ants don't want the margarine (dark yellow)... they don't recognize it as food. They go for the butter. I'm a big fan of science and progress... but not at the risk of my body. I won't go into my spill on hydrogenation... but I can't help bu think the natural stuff is easier for my body to break down and get rid of.
- What should you buy organic? and is it expensive?! Faith's advice... ya can get away with buying only the worst chemical offenders. It's not likely you're going to buy all 12 of the worst offenders list. (below).. and you can probably get a bunch of stuff off the clean list too.
- The Environmental Working Group (EWG) put out a list of the fruits/veggies with the most pesticides on them. They actually go into grocery stores and buy stuff... which they then test. The full is on their , but here are the top 12.
Sweet Bell Peppers
The trick is finding the flavors I like and ways to get them without all the processed bad stuff. I'ts been fun. Go plain. Go natural. Go do something good for yourself.
