Yes, agree -- we really try to buy as much as we can without labels. We are trying to stay away from processed foods. I enjoy cooking for my hubby and me. We do a lot of stir fry's with lots of veggies and a lean protein.

Here is a good article about misleading food labels:

I tried to buy foods with no labels. Fruits and vegetables have no labels! If I buy something with a label on it I always read it!

I just recently became aware of reading food labels and are still in amazement of all of the "stuff" in canned foods. I am feeling so much better eating fresh fruits and veggies and mostly organic and unprocessed foods!

Thanks for this forum. I'm making my own ranch dressing after reading the ingredients of a popular dressing. You may have heard me screaming from where you are. "You mean I've been putting THAT in my body for years???!!!?"

Don't give up!

Wow! Thank you so much for posting this video! I've never even considered how blueberries and fruit additives that were already in cereals might not even be the real thing at all! This has definitely changed my perception of consumerism and has really sharpened my knowledge of reading labels from here on out with EVERY product I buy!

Thank you once again, this is definitely something to share!

Thank you for the information. We all need to be aware of what we are eating. I am a big label reader when it comes to products that I purchase. This is why, we end up in the fruits and veggie section and away from the center isle of the store

Keep on track

Wow! I always wondered about some of the products mentioned. Just goes to show you're better off eating real food!

I like to get real frozen or dried blueberries (sometimes, I'll even get around to drying berries I buy in bulk) and toss them into my cereal (I eat it dry), yogurt, salad, pancake batter. At least they're real!

Thanks for sharing the info.

Thanks for posting this over here on this team. I plum forgot to do that! Together we can spread truth eh??

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
