3 Vegetables You Should Never Eat Again
I know what you’re thinking when you read the title, “I thought all vegetables were good for you?” Well, that used to be the case for just about everything grown out of the ground, but now with man’s growing demand for food, industry has created unhealthy options for vegetables. So we’ve gathered our top three veggies to stay away from.
It’s important to note before reading this that organic spinach is not the same as conventional spinach. Non-organic spinach is a vegetable that is grown with pesticides and has little nutritional value–and it’s not even all that filling! Conventional spinach has anywhere up to 50 difference pesticides (yes, 50!) on it when purchased at a store, according to the Pesticide Data Program. If you’re a fan of spinach and eating well, try to purchase organic spinach which is high in vitamin A and K.

First, that list is VERY long…and quite a few of the ingredients are hard to pronounce. Second, a marketing trick used in most of this packaging is called “light” sauced. “Light” is a very relative term that is not regulated by the FDA, so your version of light could be totally different than the version of the manufacturer. So all the harmful ingredients made to keep that sace from spoiling will also go in your body. Why would you put all of those things into your body if you can’t…
