8 "Healthy" Foods That Are Actually Really Bad for You
So What Can You Eat?
If youaregoing to buy prepackaged or processed snacks and foods (because you are a human) choose ones that have at max five ingredients — though ideally three or less. (The fewer ingredients, the less processed a product is, says Kirkpatrick.)
And if you're unsure whether something's "healthy" or nah? Ask yourself whether you (or a friend who can cook, if this isn't your best skill) could make it in your kitchen at home, suggests Kirkpatrick. "If not, best to put it back on the shelf."
Lastly, be wary of lofty claims — i.e., "As much vitamin C as an orange!" "High in fiber!" — especially if these boasts are slapped onto foods you'd otherwise consider "bad for you." Always wiser to seek the purest source of a nutrient when possible, Kirkpatrick says. (Translation: Eat. Actual. Food.)
This may make it seem like nothing but salad is sacred, but so long as you keep your eye outmostof the time, a little slip (or treat) here and there won't kill you. Remember, a huge part of health is enjoying your life. And sometimes that means indulging.
