1. Canned Vegetables
Any veggie out of a can is likely to be brimming with salt and artificial flavor enhancers. These elements alone can cause stomach upset. Most aluminum cans are also lined with a hormone disrupting chemical called BPA, which leaches into the food.
You may notice that most baby bottles and sippy cups are now labeled BPA-free, but BPA doesn’t become magically safe after toddlerhood! Avoid canned foods unless the produce inside is organic and the can is labeled as BPA-free.
Vegetables are part of a healthy diet for just about everyone, but certain people may need to limit their consumption of veggies in the nightshade and cruciferous families.
We always encourage folks to buy organic as much as possible, not only to avoid the poisonous pesticide residue, but also to support local farmers using sustainable methods.
