In the last 25 years, I have been reading labels on everything I buy at the grocery store. As a result, I have found myself avoiding products I used to buy. I was stunned at how much sugar content everyday products contained such as tomato sauce, bread, canned goods.
Sugar is addictive. I'm sure you already know that. Did you know sugar has been known to contribute to brain diseases and disorders such as Alzheimer's?
I was also surprised at how many chemicals were in our food, chemical names I couldn't pronounce let alone know what they were.
When you shop, give yourself some time to read labels. Choose the items that have the few ingredients, ingredients you know, little to no sugar.
Stay healthy now so you stay healthy as you age.
