Your intentions are good: you want to buy the best food for your body, but marketers make it confusing.
These are mistakes you might be making when buying “healthy” food:
1. Mistaking “gluten free” as good for you
2. Thinking of protein bars as healthy
When many are little better than a candy bar. If you insist on this meal-on-the-go, check out the nutrition label and pick one with the fewest ingredients with names you can actually pronounce.
3. Turning to fruit juice for your morning fix
Unless it’s fresh squeezed, and even then, it may be loaded with sugar. A better option is green juice.
4. Opting for organic
5. Fearing fat
We need foods that are high in good omega-3 fats. They help with brain function. Avoid trans fats, which are found in processed junk food. Go for healthy fats in nuts, olive or coconut oil, and wild salmon instead.
