Do you eat clean?
Eating clean means that a food has no artificial preservatives, no additives, no hydrogenated oils (a source of trans fat), no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. Would you even know if your food had those any of those things in it? Most Americans don’t even turn over the box of food to see what’s included in their food and take for granted that if the front of the box says “All Natural” – it is. Sadly, that’s not the case most of the time!
Thankfully there are companies out there that take good, clean food seriously and are dedicated to providing healthy, convenient choices for consumers. Good Food Made Simple is one of them!
Good Food Made Simple is a national, all-natural packaged food company that makes good, CLEAN, food with a taste that comes from nature, not additives.They make SIMPLE foods with ingredients that come from farms, not labs and never use artificial preservatives, flavors, colors or sweeteners. They never include hydrogenated oils (a source of trans fat)either.
Good Food Made Simple is dedicated to making food convenient for consumers by providing products that are made with all-natural ingredients packed into quick, convenient and delicious meals, ready for your table in minutes. In the past, freezer food has been given a bad rap since it can be filled with unhealthy, processed food. But, Good Food Made Simple is changing that! Food Made Simple products include several varieties of frozen oatmeal, egg patties, breakfast burritos, breakfast bowls, mac ‘n cheese and entrée burritos that are available in the freezer section of the grocery store.
Did you know that frozen can be fresher than fresh? Fruits and vegetables chosen for freezing tend to be frozen at their peak ripeness, a time when generally they are most nutrient-packed. Put these together with other wholesome ingredients, and you have a wholesome meal. Or simply try one of Good Food Made Simple’s frozen products, made with 100% all-natural, clean ingredients with no preservatives and nothing artificial.
We’ve tried a lot of the products from Good Food Made Simple in our household and I’ve gotta tell you that I was impressed! I wasn’t sure about egg white burritos or frozen mac n’ cheese – but it was good! I found myself looking forward to lunch to pull out the next variety of burrito. Even the kids liked the burritos and my husband took them to work for lunch. Good stuff! I also felt good about feeding them to my family knowing that they weren’t full of artificial ingredients, sodium and preservatives. Just good, simple food.
When I first stared learning about eating clean and processed foods, it was overwhelming. I felt guilty for buying a box of crackers or a package of cookies. I just didn’t know what to look for and what was safe for my family. So, I started small. I looked up ingredients before I went to the store and I felt more equipped to make a good decision. I ended up looking for foods that only had a 3-4 (or less) ingredients in the labels AND had things I could pronounce and knew what it was. I couldn’t always stick to this rule – but I feel like if I can with the majority of my products, I’m ahead of the food game. But, now I’ve found this “cheat sheet” from Good Food Made Simple’s website that has the most unacceptable ingredients my family should avoid and I’m trying to use it more! In the meantime, here’s the ingredients I try to avoid almost all the time!
