I want to see proper commercials for REAL food and AND AND I want to see proper nutrition classes taught in the school system.
I'm not here to rant...just give you the facts or at least some of them.
This can was cheap. Seems good right? The company has been around since the 1800's and so it must be good old fashioned goodness. The can has a nice picture on it. There are vegetables and spices in it and it is 'premium' so it must be GREAT FOR ME right? oh and convenient and fast because lets me honest I'm a Mom of 4 and hate cooking.
The nutritional information looks good. 10% daily iron that's good right? Some Vitamin C and A, Calcium. All Good stuff. Whoa!!! 1/2 Cup of sauce has 24% of my DAILY salt intake? O.K so a little high but won't kill me.
You know what WILL KILL ME? (Kill me as eventually cause chronic disease such as hypertension, diabetes,obesity, depression, hormone problems and cancer) The GLUCOSE-FRUCTOSE, Corn Syrup Sugar and last but not least the BPA the can is lined with.
Thanks for that.
Here is an alternative that is most likely sitting on your grocery shelf waiting for you to buy her.
Tomatoes from OUR COUNTRY (support your local farmer), and Tomato juice.
Tomatoes and Tomato juice. No sugar, No BPA. Did you know that Eden organic is one of the company's out there that has not used BPA in their cans? Did you know there are others? Did you know that most other cans ARE poisoning us?
Well you do now.
You have choices. They are out there and some of the choices over time with save you and your family from chronic diseases. Seriously. I would tell you about the Glucose Fructose but you all watched the video I posted earlier and know already right ? ;) And the more you buy these choices the cheaper they will get...
Oh...and sauce convenience?
Put in pot. Add a little salt, oregano and basil. Heat.
Serve with pasta.
And my quest for real food continues......Happy Eating!!
