I stumbled across a fun blog the other day, called Nerd Fitness. Their goal is to spread information about exercise, health and nutrition, but they do so with a fun attitude. The article I read was a great example — foods that many of us probably thought or continue to think are healthy, and that are promoted in advertising as healthy, but are really junk food in disguise. How many of these have you fallen for? Any that you realized recently? Vitamin Water…Granola Bars…Smoothies??
Here’s an excerpt:

Something needs to change, and it starts with where we spend our hard earned money.
Here are seven foods that have been created by the Empire to prey upon the ignorant masses trying to get healthy. Have you fallen victim to any of these marketing Sarclacc pits? (see what I did there?)”
