Unjunk Your Junk Fook: Healthy Alternatives to Conventional Snacks

I would love to tell you all that we eat nothing but fresh fruits and veggies as snacks in this house, but the truth is we occasionally do have some junk food snacks around here as well. Naturally Savvy has put out an informative book that gives healthier alternatives to some of popular junk foods called Unjunk Your Junk Food.

This book also highlights the worst ingredients in foods. They have the ingredients categorized into what they call “The Scary Seven”, which are:

  • High-Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Artificial Sweeteners
  • Artificial Flavors
  • Artificial Colors
  • Trans Fat
  • MSG
  • Preservatives
    I was shocked to find several things in our pantry contained some ingredients from “The Scary Seven”. I think the most surprisingly unhealthy “healthy” thing we had was granola bars. Our granola bars had several of the worst ingredients from the list in them.

I have found this book helpful when I’m choosing snacks for my family. I am definitely more aware of ingredients and check the list on the food item before buying it. I also find myself referencing it for the healthy alternatives it provides.

  1. I have a feeling my granola bars are bad too. I would like to read this book.

  2. The bad stuff is pretty much in everything we eat these days it seems!

  3. I recently gave up my favorite brand of ketchup because it had high fructose corn syrup in it. Hopefully more people will start making better food selections and companies will take notice and make products with natural ingredients.

  4. I want to read this, but it might make me a little freaked out about the stuff that is in the food I eat! :/

  5. I loved this book! My kids were so excited to see a recommended soda today.

  6. What an awesome book! I just added it to my kids amazon wishlist.

  7. This would be a great book for me this summer, while we’re home and tempted to eat junk.
