Adding more fruits and veggies to your diet DOES NOT mean add fruit smoothies, veggie chips, fruit leathers, fruit chews or veggie cookies. These foods have added sugar. It DOES mean - add more apples, carrots, beets, squash, berries, lettuce, tomatoes…add real fruits and veggies.
Step back, read labels, and ask yourself, “Does this product really makes sense?” Be honest with what food is – a chip is a chip and a cookie is a cookie. There are NO skinny cows.
