Day 328- Nutrition Bite

Most common food additives that everyone should avoid are acesulfame potassium, aspartame, butylated hydroxyaniosole, artificial colorings (Blue 1, Blue 2, Green 3, Red 3, Yellow 6), olestra, partially hydrogenated oil, potassium bromate, propyl gallate, saccharin, ans stevia. Many of these additives have been tested to cause cancer. Animal studies have indicated some of these additives also cause tumors, raise cholesterol levels, cause severe diarrhea, and infertility.

Sugar Preacher's Experience
The article was very informative indicating which additives you should avoid, cut back, and take with caution. This week my blog will focus on food additives. I really feel much better when I prepare food from scratch. I made my grandma's lentil soup last night(see recipes). It was tasty and curbed my sugar cravings.
