There are thousands of prepackaged snacks that claim to be healthy in grocery stores. Food labels like low-fat, sodium-free, diet, and sugar-free are misleading. Many of those products also contain chemicals and other additives that not only are not healthy for you but studies have shown that those artificial ingredients can lead to major health problems such as obesity, diabetes and even cancer. I avoid packaged foods as much as I can but some people crave salty or sugary snacks and may not have time to prepare wholesome natural foods. If you can not live without your junk food how do you know if the ingredients are damaging to your health? Andrea Donsky and Randy Boyer cofounders of NaturallySavvy.com, provides a solution for junk food addicts looking for healthier snack options in their book, Unjunk Your Junk Food.
Unjunk Your Junk Food is a colorful reference guide that compares popular junk food items so you can learn the difference between harmful ingredients and natural ingredients. The snack foods in the book are organized into categorical chapters along with bright images and their nutrition facts and ingredients. If you need help navigating the snack isles at your local grocery store Unjunk Your Junk Food will help you make healthier choices.
You can pick up this interesting, informative and entertaining guide on Amazon.com or at your local book store. Visit NaturallySavvy.com for more information about the authors and how to live a healthier, more natural lifestyle.
