5 Horrifying Food Additives You've Probably Eaten Today . . .

So, I came across this interesting article on www.cracked.com this evening and I COULD NOT WAIT to share it with you.
I'm just about speechless - just two questions...

Who came up with these ingredients...and furthermore, who in the HELL APPROVED them? 
My guess would be the FDA but who knows.

Don't say I didn't warn you . . . CLICK HERE to read article!

7 Unhealthy "Healthy" Foods

Look scrumptious, yes? Who doesn't love the sweet and salty combo?? As the experts always say, most things are okay if you eat them in moderation. No one ever said you should totally deprive yourself from some of the things you love. However, just moderate the amount and only enjoy treats like this occasionally. Choose some of the healthier nuts - like pistachios, unsalted almonds, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts - then throw in some natural raisins and a little bit of 70% dark chocolate morsels and you're good to go. Just go easy on the sweets. And remember, a small handful is plenty for a serving size. Nuts are extremely high in fat and calories, and even though there are good fats in nuts, it's easy to get too many in one sitting. Don't deprive your body if it's craving something sweet or salty. Just be smart about your choices. Figure out exactly what your body needs and go from there.

The Ugly Truth About Soy

So many of you have been asking about soy products (powders, foods, etc) and why they have such a bad reputation. I came across this awesome article on soy products and had to share. CLICK HERE to read entire article.

If you are currently using a whey or soy based protein powder, this may be a good time to switch. (Check out the "Whey Facts" below and see why dairy is just as bad, if not worse) Arbonne carries a pea and cranberry protein powder that's 100% vegan ~ It's soy-free, lactose-free, cholesterol-free and doesn't contain gluten. One serving contains 20 grams of vegan protein and has 20 essential vitamins and minerals (great for an on-the-go breakfast!) I have tried so many protein powders and have never been impressed. Ours tastes delicious! Shoot me an email if you would like to try a sample!
