A Quick List of Foods and Ingredients We (try to) Avoid

  • hydrogenated oils (trans fat)
  • artificial food dyes (especially red #40)
  • artificial sweeteners (splenda, aspartame, nutrisweet, ect)
  • non-organic versions of the dirty dozen produce
  • BPA in packaging (plastics, microwave popcorn bags, and can linings)
  • Canned foods (other than from Trader Joe’s which are BPA free)
  • BHT
  • propelled foods (whipped cream in a can and cooking oil spray)
  • sodium laurel sulfate ( I didn’t know this was in food, but I just found it in cake mix)
  • MSG
  • nitrates
  • hormones and antibiotics (added to meat and dairy)

Which of these do you avoid?  Do you have any that you avoid that I didn’t mention?
