Granola Bars – High in sugar, high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), food dyes and preservatives
Cheeze Strings – I consider these a form of plastic! Highly processed cheese, food dyes (usually annatto), very high in salt, mix of various cheeses and dairy products (such as whey), melted and mixed with emulsifiers (salts that change the texture and get them to mix together) and of course preservatives. Will these every go moldy??
Kool-Aid – I know, we all grew up with this. Full of food dyes!!!! Now of course they have juice boxes and mixes that are very high in sugar and HFCS.
Juice Boxes – Which are not juice at all. Full of sugar, HFCS, glucose-fructose and food dyes (I don’t mean natural ones, no matter what they say)
Flavored Tortilla chips, chips, snacks, crackers (anything that has spices or is flavored like BBQ) – All contain MSG in some form, full of food dyes, loaded with preservatives, lime (not the healthy kind) and very high in salt.
Children’s Cereals – These are the worst!!! Full of sugar, HFCS, food dyes, preservatives, corn syrup, cornstarch, trisodium phosphate, high mono-saturated canola oil
Peanut Butter – Corn dextrin, sugar, salt, hydrgenated vegetable oils, maltodextrin, icing sugar, soybean oil, monoglycerides (an emulsifier). such as Squirell, Jiffy, Kraft.
Roasted Nuts and Seeds – high in salt, over processed and over heated, roasted with cheap oils – all toxic
Aspartame – a synthetic compound made up of Phenylalanine and Aspartic Acid held in a chemical bond by Methanol, which breaks down into Formic Acid, Formaldehyde and Diketopiperazine (DKP). It is the DKP that is associated with brain tumours!!
Splenda – Contains chlorine, which is a proven carcinogen. Before sucralose was formally approved, research showed that it caused shrunken thymus glands and enlarged liver and kidneys! Please don’t fall for “Splenda is natural” advertising crap! NO artificial sweetener is real. They can only be harmful and so sad that these are consumed by kids. What effect will they have??
Diet and Low-Fat or No-Fat Products – No one should consume these! Full of preservatives and/or artificial sweeteners, etc. Usually highly processed and devoid of any nutrients.
Flavored Yogurts – In most cases (will not say all), these are high in sugar and preservatives and possibly food dyes.
Lunch Meats, Hot dogs, Packaged Hamburgers, Deli-meats – MSG, nitrates, nitrites (linked to heart disease, cancer, brain cancers, leukaemia). Processed meats have been linked to an increased risk of cancer due to additives used in meats such as sodium nitrite and MSG.
Luncheables – Not a lunch at all!! Processed meats, cheeses full of food dyes, MSG, loaded with salt and full of preservatives. Come on – they don’t have to be refridgerated!!! I bet they can sit on a counter for years and look exactly the same – never change.
Packaged Cheese and Crackers (with dips, etc) – Food dyes, MSG, preservatives and loaded with salt
Colored Candies – Loaded with sugar, HFCS, food dyes, MSG, preservatives, etc.
White Flour – Highly processed often using chlorine and peroxides. It no longer contains any original nutrients. The body processes it as sugar and it contributes to obesity and diabetes. North Americans eat WAY to much of this. The gluten itself is responsible for so many allergies and illnesses people are walking around with (and probably don’t even realize).
