Food Choices at the grocery store

everyone knows about “fructose corn syrup” and to avoid food that have it in the first three ingredients on the nutrients label. I wanted to also help people to avoid “enriched flour”:any bread, tortillas, or wheat, quinoa, rice and grains product that has “enriched flour” in the first three ingredients. Enriched flour is actually grains that have been stripped of nutrients and then they try to put vitamins back into it artificially. Probably a big reason why many breads dont digest well or are full of artificial preservatives that linger in the intestines, or we are taught to avoid them. I often looked for sprouted grains to be the first or in the top 3 ingredients when I buy bread and tortillas now.

Lately I have cut back on candy, and have replaced it with dried fruits. As an uber driver I need to keep my energy up so now I keep dried fruits, cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds and beef jerky, 100 calorie bagged tuna from starkist, and bagged salmon and some liquids with me to stay energized while working at night.
