Once I got older, I started watching my weight and thought that getting the “lite” salad dressings was a healthy choice. To my surprise, I was killing my liver, and poisoning my body.
I thought to myself is it possible for any product to be chemical free? Have you ever wondered what a chemical free definition looks like? Well, here you go:
Chemical-free (of farming or cultivation) not involving the use of artificial chemicals, especially pesticides or fertilizers: “a sustainable, chemical-free, grass-based livestock operation”
Now you tell me, does this look like a chemical free dressing?
Soybean Oil, Water, Egg Yolk, Sugar, Salt, Cultured Nonfat Buttermilk, Natural Flavors (Soy), Spices. Less than 1% of Dried Garlic, Dried Onion, Vinegar, Phosphoric Acid, Xanthan Gum, Modified Food Starch, Monosodium Glutamate, Artificial Flavors, Disodium Phosphate, Sorbic Acid and Calcium Disodium EDTA as Preservatives, Disodium Inosinate and Disodium Guanylate.
There are more chemicals in this product, than actual food!
Fact: Did you know that “natural flavor” means that companies can add anything to your food? Items can be derived from pretty much anything, even a beaver’s butt. Yes I said it. Click here to see my post about natural flavors.
When placing chemical filled things into your body, your body will start to react in crazy ways.. The human body was not designed to ingest chemicals, but whole, chemical free, natural foods.
So symptoms of digesting chemical filled food would be such things as: Massive bloating, discomfort, cramps, headaches, flu like symptoms, running to the restroom (if you catch my drift). In addition, Chemicals attach to whatever they can inside your body. This can lead to even more health problems. I like to call this a slow deterioration of your body, or in some cases a quick one.
Olive oil, garlic vinaigrette:
The hubby and I use this on our salad all the time. This would be delicious on a greek salad.
