Women Diets: Healthy Lunchbox Makeovers
Think what's in your brown bag would pass muster with a professional nutritionist? You might be surprised to learn how poor your diet really is
Kimberly Snyder's assessment: "I understand the intense temptation to buy those frozen meals at the supermarket. After all, all you have to do is microwave them and you're all set, right? And, it sure is convenient how all the nutritional info is neatly listed out on the back of the box, without having to guess, right?
But behind the glitzy, easy temptation that packaged foods present as being 'healthy' and 'low calorie' the truth remains: Packaged foods are processed foods. And processed foods never, ever behave the same in the body as fresh, whole foods do.
The company's website didn't provide a full ingredient list on this product, but I'm sure there were more than several that do not qualify as whole foods. The nutritional information did say, 'contains milk, soy and wheat' probably because they are such high allergens. They are also two of the most mucus-forming, extremely acidic foods in the body, and combined with the gluten-containing wheat, we are seeing a meal that will not digest very cleanly in the body, or promote Kristal's natural beauty. Why? Because the more acidic we are, the easier it is to hold on to excess weight and the faster we tend to age.
Another thing to point out is the 540 mg of sodium, which is more than likely coming from cheap, denatured table salt. As we are moving into summer, who wants to look overly bloated from cheap salts?"
