It’s hard to face it, but some of your favorite and best-tasting foods can be the worst foods for your health! Whether a childhood fave or a daily indulgence, here are the top 5 foods/beverages to avoid!
1. Fruit Juice
Don’t let the word “fruit” fool you! Fruit juice can contain just as much sugar as a soft drink and many contain high fructose corn syrup. Yuck! The solution? Swap your sugary fruit juice with Boku Super Berries. It contains ten of the most potent, nutrient-rich super fruits and berries, and will leave you kicking your juice habit for good!
Whether they are diet or regular, soda can be damaging to your body. A can of soda can equate to 10 teaspoons of sugar! Boku Organic Sweet Matcha is a refreshing and beneficial alternative to soda. It is great tasting and contains no processed refined sugar.
3. Artificial Sweetener
To sweeten or not to sweeten? These sugar substitutes are chemicals that replace the sweetness of sugar. Many studies show that artificial sweeteners can be dangerous to your health. Turn to natural sweeteners like honey or organic maple syrup to sweeten your drinks or foods.
4. Processed Meats
Who wants to eat anything with the word “processed” in front of it? Not me! These meats are harmful to your body, if you’re one to eat this on a daily, think again. For a healthier source of protein try Boku Original Super Protein vegan protein with 18 grams of protein per serving!
5. Breakfast Cereal
You might want to think twice about your favorite childhood cereal. Most breakfast cereals are high in added sugars, preservatives, and artificial flavors. Many cereals contain genetically modified ingredients (GMO), unless they are branded as organic. Start your day off right with Boku Coconut Chocolate Trail Mix, it’s packed with protein, fiber, and is organic!
