I was pretty sure that I didn’t want to know how many of the food items in my house had the dreaded HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP in them. Because I didn’t want to know. Normally, when I don’t want to know the answer, I don’t ask the question. It’s a good way to live. But lately, my food choices have plagued me. I eat terribly for the most part – I crave fast food, candy, sweets and carbs. But for Emma I want the best. So really I should only put the best into me. And I buy organic. A lot. As much as possible. I mean, if there’s an organic option, I buy it.
And after ranting last night about the high amounts of HFCS in school lunch and having a general understanding that HFCS is everywhere and impossible to get away from, plus reading that there are people out there who remove it from their diet completely, I decided that it’s time to ask the question.
So how much HFCS food do I have in my house? The answer surprised me. In a good way. Here it is. Everything in my house that has HFCS or just plain corn syrup. Not that much. And even better, this is all stuff I don’t eat that much. I’m proud of myself. Apparently I’m a pretty good shopper. And we’re healthier for it.
Now. If only I could kick that fast food habit. I’ll keep the candy for now. ;)
