Walking into any grocery store, we’re immediately bombarded with terms such as..
However, what the common consumer doesn’t know is that a lot of these brand named products cover up their ingredients with glamorized marketing.
Unless you actually know what to look for in a product, you’re putting yourself at risk by consuming unhealthy fats, preservatives, and fillers.
Potentially making you bloated and adding unwanted weight around your waistline.
But you don’t have to worry about all of that because we have your back..
Today we’ll be going over 6 unhealthy household foods and its effects.
And as a bonus we’ll list alternatives for each food respectively.
So lets get started.
If you’re the type to marinade your BBQ in sweet savory sauce, you may want to think again. Most BBQ Sauces that you find in the grocery stores contain high amounts of sugar. Consuming high amounts of sugars can lead to a huge array of illnesses such as type 2 diabetes and extra calories.
Our alternative is to create a healthier sauce alternative. You can start by mixing a batch of tomato paste, Worcestershire Sauce, vinegar, and spices.
Diet Ice Cream
Do not mistake the term “diet” for healthy. A lot of diet ice creams we find in grocery stores contain an unhealthy ingredient known as Polysorbate 80.
What is this?
It’s a lab made additive that can lead to colon cancer and inflammation in your intestines.
The only reason why companies add this into their ice cream is to provide you with the addictive creamy consistency of regular ice cream
Our healthy alternative would be Halo Top Ice Cream. This ice cream yields about 320 calories per pint and includes wholesome ingredients.
First of all let’s talk about how this is a canned meal. Most canned meals contain a higher sodium content than home made meals. What does high sodium mean? A life of diabetes and heart disease.
Second is that their sauce contains high fructose corn syrup. For those of you that don’t know what high fructose corn syrup is, it’s a cheaper version of regular sugar that is used by companies to save money. Consuming a high amount of this syrup can be highly toxic to our bodies.
A healthy alternative is to find ravioli freshly made at your local grocery store. You can locate freshly made ravioli in the refrigerated pasta section.
“Eat brown rice, it’s healthier” Even though brown rice can be amazing to shred weight, it can also be a lot more detrimental. Recent studies have found that brown rice is starting to contain arsenic which is a carcinogen. If you didn’t already know, consuming carcinogens can lead to a variety of illnesses such as skin and bladder cancer.
We’ve all come to love Oreos. Whether it was a topping on our ice cream or a guilty snack, unhealthy ingredients rarely came to mind. However, any savvy snacker should know that Oreos contain Palm oil, a substance that triggers fat-causing inflammation. Palm oil + Oreo addiction = Weight Gain

Boxed Mac & Cheese
Yes it’s convenient, but convenience comes with a price. 1 serving of Kraft’s Mac & Cheese yields over 500mg of sodium. With that amount of sodium you’ve hit the majority of your recommended intake for the entire day.
The consumption of a high sodium diet can lead to health issues such as heart disease and more.
Instead of instant Mac and Cheese, do yourself a favor and boil fresh pasta and grind organic cheese on top. It tastes 200% better!
