Clean eating and HFCS

high fructose corn syrup... Its in pretty much EVERYTHING it seems!
I spent probably 10 minutes in the bread aisle looking for a bread that was clean.. pretty hard to do.. let me tell you!

I finally found one.. made by Arnold 100% whole wheat bread. It says it in huge letters on the bag.. AND it's only 40 calories per slice.. so having a sandwich for lunches will be ok. (I have to switch.. getting bored with salads!)

Anyways.. after while doing a search for more info about breads and HFCS.. I came across a very useful site that lists foods that do NOT have HFCS in them. Worth a look if you are working on eating clean!

oh.. and if you really want more info..
Read: Omnivore's Dileman
or
Watch: Super Size Me, or, King Corn

It's pretty scary what some foods/drinks have in them...

I loved Omnivores Dilemma as well.
It really opened my eyes to what is in my food.
I still make poor choices some days :) but at least Im aware, huh?

Hi Mel!
Thank You! for your love & support :)
I haven't read Omnivore's Dilemma yet but I did read In Defense of Food and I've watched Super Size Me.
Other books I like are Fatland & Mindless Eating & Fast Food Nation.
What's scary is that "they" know it's bad for us & continue adding the shit anyway. We need to become informed consumers of our food supply.
I know they aren't for everyone but have you tried Wasa crispbreads? They're as close to clean as you could get, I think.
Take care, Mel

Hi,
StopHFCS.com is also another site
that lists HFCS-free foods and beverages.
To your health.
Take care
