MSN featured this slide show on many of the foods we eat…eye-opening I thought and worth sharing:

These always astound me. It is said that they add sugar to make it addictive and that makes you want to buy more of what they are selling. I got a similar list from Everyday health this week. I guess it's on everyone's mind right now.

I hate how difficult it is to find organic sugar free nut butters…drives me insane…seems the only place I can get them is at whole foods and off the internet…which is why I do not eat them much…My son picked up some almond butter and some macadamia nut butter from whole foods the other day…I had been out for about a week and a half…GRRRRRR!!!!

Peanut Butter is one of my main foods…Smucker's makes an all-natural that lists only peanuts and salt as it's ingredients. It is a bit pricier than Skippy etc and has to be stirred, then refrigerated. Walmart carries it for less than many supermarkets and the current cost is about $4.70 for a 26 oz jar. Publix, here in Florida, also has their own natural PB you can buy in the deli area…I haven't looked to see if they carry other nut butters. I go through one 26 oz jar of Smuckers All Natural per week.

I just wish they were affordable … I eat celery with peanut butter (Skippy creamy) regularly but would like to switch it up a bit … saw a small jar of organic almond butter at Walmart the other day … $10.00 … couldn't believe it.
