I have this saying “If you can’t read it, don’t eat it.” I’m a label reader and I try to keep it natural. But, if labels aren’t your thing then just watch out for one simple word in your food “Hydrogenated oil or partially hydrogenated oils” It’s usually in bold on the ingredient list since it’s been outed to consumers.
The thing that most people don’t know is, your arteries are the size of spaghetti. Small, right? You think they’re the size of straws and think it would take some time to muck ‘em up, right? But really, it doesn’t take much to clog them. Keep yourself and your kid’s arteries clean and if you decide to watch out for one thing in your food stay away from the hydrogenated oils.
