Happy New Year! It is so crazy this challenge is almost over! I hope that everyone’s new year brings beautiful memories, stupendous health, and great love.
The Basal Evolution Challenge for Week #19 is to check the ingredients labels. Obviously, the best foods are the ones without an ingredient list. You can see the difference between a “bad” ingredient list and a “good” ingredient list, below.
In the event you do purchase packaged/processed items (because sometimes I just need an Oatmeal Cream Pie):
Try to avoid the following:
- Artificial Flavorings
- Artificial Colorings
- Artificial Sweeteners
- High Fructose Corn Syrup
- Vegetable Oil, Shortening, Hydrogenated Oils
- Bleached Flour
Note: I am pretty sure Oatmeal Cream Pies contain all of the above. 🙂 But everyone needs to indulge occasionally.
An easy rule of thumb to live by: if you can’t pronounce it or if your grandparents wouldn’t recognize it, you probably shouldn’t be eating it 🙂
1 week of the challenge left! Keep it up!
Cheers and happy evolving!
