So-Called Healthy Foods You Really Shouldn’t Be Touching

February 22, 2013 ‐ By Julia Austin


The food industry is always trying to take advantage of the millions of people taking to a healthier lifestyle, slapping misleading labels on packages and publishing reports about their product’s health benefits, while hiding the overpowering detriments. But don’t be fooled. These “healthy” foods have no place in your diet.

    Make your smoothies at home!! I take fresh strawberries, cut them up, and freeze. A cup or less of apple juice, fat free yogurt, spinach (you can’t taste it) and a couple of packets of splenda…You have a yummy delicious smoothie. Plus, you know exactly what goes into it.

    Very informative article. I am a vegetarian myself and I would eat a hamburger before I eat a veggie pattie lol! Indeed my decision to become a vegetarian came from the desire to eat healthier foods and most processed food, vegan/vegetarian or not, are not healthy because full of additives. I do not eat/drink anything that says low/reduced on it because to me it means “altered” and therefore unnatural. As you pointed out, moderation is the key.

    I love smoothies. For a while, I was making them by cutting up fresh fruit, freezing it, then running it through the blender with 100% fruit juice. Still fattening. At least they were the way I was drinking them because I liked a big glass…everyday. That was my dessert. Ended up having to leave them alone.

      I say leave the juice out and use ice instead. Works for me. Also, there are lot of very healthy juices you can buy from the organic markets to substitute the regular sugary ones. They’re expensive, but worth it.

    Then what health foods do you expect that we eat?

      The thing is, all of these are good for you if you buy the authentic versions. It’s like buying frozen vegetables by a major brand versus going to the small organic/fresh market store and picking up real veggies grown by small farmers.
