Pantry Purging™

  • Did you know that in 2006, the FDA  put forth a new food labeling regulation where food manufacturers have to identify how much trans fats are in their food products?
  • Did you know that some slick food marketing campaigns say "No trans fats" when the food really does contain trans fats?
  • Do you feel like food ingredient labels are written in a foreign language?
  • Have you heard the latest reports about trans fats (found in many popular foods) and how they can contribute to heart disease and stroke?
  • Do you struggle to find foods that are healthy and convenient for you and your family?
  • Are you concerned about the growing trend of childhood and adult obesity and the related health issues?

If you feel you could use some help applying what you are hearing about food ingredients to your lifestyle, then this service is for you its a Food Ingredient Awareness Program.  

Using my Pantry Purging Pyramid as a guide, a handful of ingredients that have undesirable effects in our bodies are reviewed, including:

  • Hydrogenated oils (trans fats)
  • High fructose corn syrup
  • Artificial colors
  • Artificial preservatives
  • Artificial flavors (including MSG) 
  • Artificial sweeteners

How does the Pantry Purging Process work? Together, we tour your cupboard, refrigerator, and freezer.

While reading the ingredient listings, we discuss the pros and cons of the food items. I offer you suggestions on alternative, healthier food options and where to shop for it. One of my services includes accompanying you food shopping.

Become a savvy consumer, learning how to detect undesirable food ingredients by reading the list of ingredients!
