When you think about it, every food product is free of something these days (or even many things!), whether it’s gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, sugar-free – you get the point? But it’s crucial to remember that a healthy product isn’t just determined by what is not in it- it’s so much more important to check out what IS in it!
Once you start reading ingredient labels (and get over the disgust of what’s in some of the things we just buy without knowing what’s in them), you realize how life changing it can be to take back the control and make informed food choices. That’s the message I’d love to get across to all vegetarians, vegans, gluten-freers, and everyone alike.
If you can’t pronounce it, and can’t trace where it came from, don’t eat it. – Common sense
