Foods You Should Stop Buying Now
Those "fruit and juice" bars that cost $2 a pop at the grocery store are usually filled with preservatives and other unnecessary flavor ingredients. Why not make your own at home? Just make a simple blended juice smoothie, pour it into a paper cup, add a popsicle stick and freeze!
Pre-packaged trail mix products are not only expensive, but they are often mostly filled with the unhealthy unnecessaries like candied chocolates, raisins, and peanuts. Make your own by selecting nuts high in healthy fats and unsulfured dried fruits.
Spice rubs or mixes are often sold at the meat counter and seem like a good buy because you get all those ingredients in a single package. If you check the label first, you'd notice that the first ingredient is salt -- and that most of the other herbs that follow are actually already in your own pantry.
