Ingredient Lists that are Unhealthy!

Now for the Ingredient List! This is Where I have so Much to teach you!

Sugar Alcohols

It's a lot of work to eat clean out of a box. With that said- you really don't need to worry about any of that ↑ if you eat as clean as you can. You can purchase fresh and clean and never out of a box and eliminate the need to even learn all this stuff.

I know- I know we live in a world of convenience and If I can get you to at least eat better in a box and maybe steer you toward a cleaner way of eating (cause it's cheaper and easy and quick!) then I'll be happy!

Besides even as a clean eater I still buy frozen goods and even some some shelved products and I like to learn what it all means and even products like breads/pastas/flour etc they all require purchases on my part so it's hard to not buy something that has been prepared for me!

Artifical Sweeteners: I don't use them- They are Not natural- they are man made and our body ooes not recognize it!
Sucralose, Splenda, Saccharin, Aspertame, NutraSweet, Equal, Acesulfame K, Sunette, Sweet One

Sugar Alcohols: They can be partially broken down by the body, they are derived through real sugar however- they are mechanically derrived and the alcohol portion can cause intestinal/bowel problems.
Maltitol syrup, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, Maltitol, Xylitol, Isomalt, Sorbitol, Lactitol, Mannitol, Erythritol
