Honey Mustard?

by in Blog Posts, Food & Nutrition, Recipes, Soups & Sauces November 5, 2020

WHY THIS????

Organic plain Greek yogurt, organic mayo, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, mustard, honey, salt & pepper.

AND NOT THIS???


Soybean oil, high fructose corn syrup, distilled vinegar, water, dijon mustard, mustard seed, white wine, salt, citric acid, spices, honey, egg yolk, sugar, etc.

Well, at least there are MUSTARD and HONEY in there somewhere??!

Food labels list ingredients in order of quantity. Don’t you find it interesting that in a honey mustard dressing, the first two ingredients are soybean oil and high fructose corn syrup? These also happen to be 2 of the main ingredients in any food that should be avoided!!

But why do they do this?
Why not just make the product out of quality ingredients consisting of what the food says it is on the label?

The short answer: because the food industry is a business. They want to mass-produce products at a lower cost that are shelf-stable and will not spoil, to make more money $$$$$$$.
Truth: they just do not care about the health of people consuming their products. It’s greed that has the upper hand here. We have to be in control of what we eat and make the better choice.

It is up to us to invest in our health and what we are eating and feeding our families.

Read the food labels. Take 5 more minutes to make the healthier version. Pay attention to your ingredients. Creamy honey mustard is a delicious dip/dressing that can easily be made at home and won’t sabotage your health while eating it.
