Eat This Not That
👉🏼 Eat this NOT that! 🤔
What is really going in the mouths of our children? In my household we always start the morning with one of the following things:
📍Eggs, Ezikel Bread, Peanut Butter, 1/2 banana
📍Egg wrap on Ezikel tortilla with Cheese
📍Rolled Oats, fruit, Peanut butter and cinnamon
📍Oat (flour free) clean waffles
📍Flax (flour free) clean pancakes
Our goal is to always begin our day with things that are not packed with added sugars. Although, we do at times use organic Multi-Grain chex for dry snacks during the day.
However, when I was pregnant 🤰I craved my old time favorite Cinnamon Toast Crunch 😳! This was my childhood favorite cereal and the growing baby 👶🏻in my belly knew it 😂! I refused 🚫 to buy Cinnamon Toast Crunch and let me explain why...
👉🏼 I have you heard of the chemical Trisodium Phosphate (also known as TSP) 🤔? Well if not let me enlighten you to what this ingredient is that you will commonly find in a lot of foods, including Cinnamon Toast Crunch! 😡
It is an ingredient that was once commonly found in industrial cleaners, until EPA and OSHA found it too toxic for employees.😳
Crazy right!? 😏
You may think, well why doesn't the
FDA allow it!? 😏
📣Newsflash!! 📣The FDA is not the end all be all for our safety! Due to funding, the proper studies have not been done to see what the true effects are on humans! They tell us that small amounts are ok in our diet, however fail to mention that this is a common ingredient found in SEVERAL foods!!! So a small amount very quickly becomes a large amount!
What bothers me the most is you will find this ingredient 🚫 BANNED 🚫 in other countries! ... but NOT ours. Instead you find it in every grocery store, in our homes and in our children's mouths.
If you are going to indulge or let your kids indulge in this cereal than I would suggest Cascadian Farms Organic Cinnamon Crunch. This was my guilty pleasure during my pregnancy cravings!
