10 Foods You Thought Were Healthy

10 Foods You Thought Were Healthy

Food and nutriion knowledge is constantly evolving. But let’s take a look at food you thought was health back in the day. Here are some of the most popular products that fool and still continue to do so:

1. Granola Bars

Hopefully, now you know to look at the sugar and fiber content before you buy these ready-to-eat snacks.

2. 100% Pure Orange Juice

We were always told to have a big glass of Orange Juice in the morning to get our vitamin C. Now we know it is just a big glass of sugar.

3. Low Fat Crackers

Low Fat Crackers

These might have a slight caloric edge on the regular version. But that does not mean eating half a box in one sitting like I do sometimes.

4. Frozen Diet Meals

Some may have fewer than 400 calories! But they have more than a quarter of the salt intake.

5. Health Drinks

 Whether you drink it as instant breakfast, weight-loss shake, or vitamin-infused waters,        H2O is always the gold standard when it comes to hydration—and real food not mixes or      bottles is the best place to get nutrition.

6.  Muffins

These  are nothing more than cupcakes-in-disguise but we’re not falling for it anymore.

 

 

 

7. Margarine

And this was back in the days before they removed most of the trans fats from the faux butter.

 

 

 

8. Rice Cakes

Basically not much in the way of calories…or nutrition

 

 

 

9.  ” Real” Fruit Snacks

Even candy says on the package that it’s “made with real fruit.” This one has fooled us for many years fruit snacks. But no more…

 

 

 

 

10.  Fig-Filled Cookies
