In your quest to get in shape, you may be on a constant lookout for healthy foods and snacks to help you achieve your goal.
Don’t be fooled by marketing speak – you should always have a closer look at the ingredients list so you understand what you’re consuming.
Just because something appears in the health food aisle or boasts a few healthy ingredients, doesn’t mean it’s good for you.
Here are 7 foods that you should not mistakenly label as healthy.
No matter how you try to spin it, eating a bag of veggie chips does not provide you with your vegetable intake for the day.
In fact, veggie chips have been found to be no better than potato chips.
They could end up being worse because people who believe they’re snacking on health food will end up having a larger serving.
Veggie chips have a comparable amount of calories, fat and sodium as regular chips.
If you want a truly healthy vegetable snack, munch on celery and carrot sticks.
