18. Veggie Burgers
Heavily processed veggie burgers are not exactly a healthy substitute for a beef burger because they are made with caramel colour, artificial flavours and disodium inosinate. If you think these are healthy, you are in for a shocking revelation.
Most popular veggie burger varieties, such as Morning Star Farms Spicy Black Bean Burger, are packed with offensively unhealthy ingredients, such as artificial flavours, potential carcinogen caramel colour, and disodium inosinate, which acts much like an MSG by improving the flavour and igniting your appetite.
If you must enjoy the convenience of a packaged veggie burger, pick out Amy’s Sonoma Burger, which contains organic vegetables, walnuts and quinoa.
19. Instant Cinnamon Oatmeal
Instant oatmeal is the worst way to reap all the countless benefits of oatmeal, but truth be told, they pack up nothing but artificial flavours and shocking amounts of sugar. Most manufacturers are branding their instant oatmeal packages as a health food, while the shockingly large serving size packs up a whole lot of unhealthy ingredients.
Supposedly healthy instant oatmeal brands, such as McCann’s Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal provide your body an alarming 21 grams of sugar, which is a whopping 40% of your daily dosage requirement of added sugars in one day. This makes instant oatmeal an extremely unhealthy pick to start the day.
You need to power their mornings with the nutrient-rich energy offered by unflavoured oats, they will cut down your consumption of calories, and providing a satiating satisfaction that will curb your appetite for longer hours. Fill up your oatmeal bowl with antioxidant-rich berries, and fiber-filled raw almonds, walnuts and pecans.
20. Hot Dogs
There is an abundance of valid reasons to avoid the consumption of hot dogs for they are brimming with a long list of carcinogen-forming nitrates and alarmingly high levels of sodium. Hot dogs are packed with health-damaging ingredients, such as sodium nitrite, sodium phosphate, sodium, and corn syrup.
A recent study revealed that consumption excessive amounts of serum phosphates leads to heightened risk factors of developing heart ailments, weaker bones, premature aging and chronic kidney ailments. If you simply can’t avoid the consumption of a delicious dog, pick out healthier organic varieties, for instance the Applegate Farms’ Great Organic Uncured Beef Hot Dog.
