If your food has a long shelf life, you will have a short shelf life.

Have you ever wondered about the ingredients in the food you eat?  What are these things that you can’t pronounce and are they OK for you to eat?

Long story short – with the advent of food in a box, there are many ingredients, additives, and preservatives that are in our food, and are not healthy for us.  Dyes, long organic chemicals that you can’t pronounce – why are they there?  In many cases to increase the shelf life of these products.  Our bodies don’t know what to do with them, and in many cases cannot process them.  A good example of this is trans fatty acids.  By adding hydrogen to liquid oils in order to solidify them, we created these trans fatty acids and our bodies don’t have the enzymes to process them.  As a result, they can build up and become toxic in the body.  Stay away from these!  And to make things worse, food labels are entirely honest either.  When you the term “partially hydrogenated”, that means trans fats.

A good rule of thumb here – stay away from man-made molecules and molecules that are new to nature.  If you can’t promounce it, and  you don’t know what it does, stay away from it.

Check out this You Tube video of a Happy Meal that was left at room temperature for 6 months.  Can you imagine what this is doing in our bodies?

If your food has a long shelf life, you will have a short shelf life.
