Came across yet another “healthy” snack food at the local natural food market in Ft Collins yesterday. These and all the rest are not healthy and they are not good for you. Highly processed, and what I call “food fractions”… Along with a rancid oil that is HIGHLY inflammatory, due to the high percentage of Omega 6s. Not to mention the “natural flavors” thrown in for good measure (who knows what they are– usually contain MSG and gluten, BTW) and…a lot of starch–beans… Rice…. potato starch-(read SUGAR as your body knows it is and will process it as such). Sounds like a blood sugar spike full of empty calories just waiting to happen!
If you are hungry, snack on real food folks. Grab a bunch of carrots and radishes and cucumber slices and celery sticks… Add anchovy dip or Caesar dip or Roquefort dip and your body is good to go. Carbs (which vegetables are) with fat to modulate the sugar impact AND assist in the absorption of those vitamins and nutrients. Your body AND your brain will thank you.
That’s all for now. Snack tip of the day. Enjoy!
