We are lucky enough to have natural grocery stores cose by making shopping easier when trying to avoid certain ingredients. But, not everyone is! Today, i purchased several items at dollar tree that meet our criteria (no artificial colors, flavors or high fructose corn syrup)...hydrogenated oils are on the list as well. Now, that is may have other criteria...all organic, for example. We are starting with this and moving from there. So what did i buy?
h.k.anderson peanut butter filled pretzel nuggets
minute maid juice boxes
luna nutz over chocolate bars
not too shabby for $6! Bought 2 of each!

"Cleaner" Food!

For 2012, one of our "resolutions" if you want to call it that is no artificial colors, flavors and no high fructose corn syrup! WE can do this. WE have done it before. Here is the challenge. For those of you without an "Earth Fare", "Whole Foods" or "Greenlife" close to you, how do you do this? And, I keep hearing, "It is too expensive to eat like that"! It is so not!!!! So, what for the things I find on a budget that fit into our food budget for the month. You can find items anywhere! I even found snacks that meet our criteria at Dollar General!!!!!

So, stay tuned!
