Processed foods

Saturday, July 27, 2013

I read something powerful yesterday it said if you cut out flour, sugar and high fructose corn syrup we would be cutting out 90% of processed foods. I thought I would try this. What I found is I have to give up all my condiments except hot sauce and mustard and I found HFCs is lurking in the most unassuming places. I will buy more lentils and whole grains to keep myself fuller. Glad I learned about this before I go on my 2 week trip to Arizona. I may not do it perfectly but I am going to do my very best to avoid processed foods.

    Interesting how our food manufacturing processes have a way of sneaking these ingredients into the most unlikely foods....Best to you and enjoy your trip1

    Good luck to you with your amazing goal. It is awful how much HFCS is in everything. I can do without HFCS and most sugar, but flour I use alto I do try to use the whole grain variety.
