We go to grocery stores, hypermarkets, because for us it is easier and more convenient. But what price would actually pay for it?
Most commercially available food products.
They are usually inexpensive, but the consequences of their use costly to treat. If you are looking for a way to eat healthy, you can not buy the following products:
Products with fruit additives
We all know about the benefits of berries. But if you want to buy the product with berry filling — croissant, muffin, sauce, seriously consider. In fact, most supplements do not contain berries. Better buy a cake without a berry filling, berries, whip them in a blender and pour the resulting puree pastry. So it will be much more useful.
Tea is a healthy and low-calorie beverage if you brew it yourself. If you buy it in the bottle, it is already loaded with sweeteners, stabilizers, and other chemicals.
There is only one reason to buy gluten-free baked goods — if you have a gluten intolerance. The fact that such rolls usually contain more fats, carbohydrates, and artificial ingredients than traditional bread. Yes they are more expensive.
Read the label carefully. If the bread says that it consists of several types of grain, most likely in front of you — plain white bread with dyes and additives. If white bread, then wheat should be the main ingredient.
Skim peanut butter
Regular peanut butter provides you with “good” fats and protein. If the oil is “skimmed”, so it has a lot of sugar. Draw your own conclusions.
Packaged frozen foods — whether vegetables or shrimp — look attractive, but almost certainly contain refined sugar, TRANS fats and chemical preservatives. You can buy frozen meat, fish or vegetables, but they should always be sold in bulk and without packaging.
Canola, soy and safflower oil contain a lot of unhealthy fats and GMOs. Instead, use olive, Flaxseed or coconut oil.
In a Packed confectionery is almost always too much refined sugar, refined flour, GMOs or preservatives. But to learn how to cook desserts you can own. But if lazy, buy in specialized confectionery, where they are prepared.
Bottled salad dressings, which are widely used for cooking, contain all kinds of sugar, artificial flavors and preservatives. In the bowl of salad a few tablespoons of the filling, and harm him more than benefit. Make the salad yourself.
Chocolate and protein bars
These things are advertised as a good alternative to candy, but calories and harm to the body they are more. The thing high in fat and sugar. Need a quick charge? Eat fruit or a handful of nuts.
Do not buy bottled water. Far better to buy a filter for tap water. It will save you a lot of money. And this is the best investment in your health and the environment. Besides, bottled water is often “empty”, i.e. tasteless and contains no useful minerals.
