Beaver Anal Glands. Enough Said.

Read this article about 8 ingredients that make you want to flee in food terror. After reading it, I did a little bit of research and compiled a list of the foods that contained these additives. It was really eye opening to me. I knew how bad processed foods were for you, but when you see a list of 8 bad food additives, and almost every additive is in processed foods well – it gets you really thinking. In short, avoid the following if at all possible: processed foods, packaged cereals, frozen dairy, frozen meals, and booze.
·         Packaged Cereals
·         Snack foods & Desserts
·         Frozen or Processed meat & poultry
·         Beer!
·         Frozen Dairy Products
·         Fruit Juice
·         Jelly
·         Mayonnaise
·         Processed vegetables
·         Soft drinks
·         Dessert mixes
·         Frozen meals
·         French fries
·         Fast food
·         Packaged Cereals
·         Frozen dairy
Sodium Nitrate
·         Processed meats
Beaver Anal Glands (Castoreum)
·         Frozen Dairy Products
·         Alcohol
·         Desserts
Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein
·         Processed meats
·         Canned soups

  1. Luckily I have given up all that stuff for the most part and now I sure am glad I did. Thanks for the information.

  2. It is sad that we've gotten to the point where we will all have to become small-scale farmers if we want to really be sure what we're eating is what we think we're eating. I really don't buy anything anymore (except almond milk) that has more than one ingredient...the only stuff here that's in bags, boxes, or jars is coffee, tea, peanut butter, quinoa, brown rice, frozen veggies. But even then, now I have to worry about GMOs, other contamination, and sometimes even the packaging itself (canned beans = BPAs!).

  3. It's frightening when you think about how much other stuff is in all these packaged foods! No wonder I feel so much better after giving all that stuff up!
