Best Healthy Foods
Many foods are labeled organic but may not be completely healthy. Those foods could be loaded with sugar or their packaging boasts healthy nutrients which portray the product as safe, but it could be processed in very questionable conditions. There could be toxic processing or packaging that’s making the food unsafe. Over the years articles and documentaries like Food Inc. brought to light many concerns in the food industry and have prompted a noticeable improvement in manufacturing and food processing efforts to offer healthier and more organic options. However, as sources like this Healthline article
remind us it’s still wise to keep up with new developments and use resources to stay healthy.
For these reasons, it doesn’t hurt to try to shop for safe products when possible. To each their own, always research and decide what resources you trust and what foods you feel comfortable consuming.
Avoiding processed foods is ideal. However, regarding things like yogurt or a dried fruit and nut mix… some are much safer than others. Currently, I trust the EWG database and sometimes I also look up ingredients or brands separately if I want to dive deeper. On this page I have provided some of my favorite healthy food finds and best healthy food options I have found over the years.
