Fork in the hand of the devil

We eat for a variety of reasons – because a particular food tastes good, as part of socializing, boredom, or just because the clock says, “Time to eat!” Occasionally, we even eat because we are actually hungry. Unfortunately, too many Americans consume foods1. enriched wheat, 2. trans fats (partially hydrogenated vegetable oil) and 3. high-fructose corn syrup,(processed and packaged).

These three ingredients are prevalent in our food supply – yet they are basically “empty calories,” lacking any nutritional value. In addition to the health benefits of avoiding these three ingredients, you can also avoid many chemicals and additives by association.

So, what can you do? Avoid all products with these three ingredients. Choose more fruits, vegetables, lean meats, dairy, nuts, seeds, beans and whole grains. Flavor them when necessary with natural sweeteners and fats that have not been created in a laboratory. Remember, if people have been eating it for hundreds of years, it is probably OK to eat, because humans are still here.
