10 Foods That Sound Healthy (but Aren't) by Cooking Light

I ran across this article and felt that I needed to share it with you because I am a huge advocate of reading labels. It is important that you are aware of what you are buying and can make the better/best choice. In addition, it gives insight into all the additives (and modified items) that are put into our everyday food staples.

Cooking Light's Nutrition Expert shares 10 foods that we all may think are or sound good for us and offers up some alternatives.

The first one on their list (for the rest, you will need to head over to their site) is Multi-grain and Wheat Breads. This one really get me because 95% of the breads out there start off with enriched or bleached flour and guess what that means? you are not getting true whole grain goodness.

Not great news as nothing is quite as wonderful as really yummy, grainy bread! Oh well. Interesting article! Love your blog!

V. interesting. I am really into making no-knead bread. It definitely tastes great and has fewer additives then the bagged stuff.

It's amazing how food is disguised to appear healthy. Very interesting list. Most of those I was aware of, but didn't realize that turkey lunchmeat contains so much sodium... My hubby eats that all the time. I personally don't care for it.

A timely reminder to be fully informed about what we eat.

Very true Jennifer! I am huge into reading labels, whole is a very important word when it comes to talking about grains. Manufacturers have gotten pretty tricky at making their labels say what they think the consumer wants to hear. Thanks for the reminder!
