Is there any wonder why we have more autism, A.D.D., food allergies, asthma, etc. The disease list get’s longer by the day. The drug companies love it too.

I would rather have beans, rice, tomatoes, potatoes, squash, corn, carrots, lettuce, onion, garlic, swiss chard, spinach, radishes, mustard greens, collard greens, peaches, apples, mangos, guavas, bananas, oranges, lemons, limes, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, grapes, cashews, almonds, avocados, jalapenos, etc. You get the picture. Nature food! I am sure that you recognize this list better than the list above as edible food.

It pays to read your food labels when you by food. In Texas, Blue Bell Ice Cream is a legend and everyone swears by it except this Texan. I prefer Haagen Daz because it is natural, true, ice cream.

Here are the ingredients of Haagen Daz Strawberry. Five ingredients!

Cream, skim milk, strawberries, sugar, egg yolks

Let’s examine Blue Bell Strawberry’s ingredients.

Oooops! Blue Bell doesn’t want you to know. It’s not online and their ingredients are subject to change.

So how about another popular brand Blue Bunny? Let’s see what’s in their strawberry ice cream.

INGREDIENTS: Milk, Cream, Skim Milk, Sugar, Strawberries, Strawberry Revel (Strawberries, Sugar, Water, Natural Flavors, Pectin, Citric Acid, Phosphoric Acid, Calcium Chloride, Blue 1 and Red 40), Corn Syrup, Contains 1% or less of the following: Carob Bean Gum, Guar Gum, Carragennan, Mono & Diglycerides, Cellulose Gel, Cellulose Gum, Natural Strawberry Flavor with Other Natural Flavors.
Oh, my! I lost count. Is it like 25 ingredients? Stuff we have never heard of? Shaving quality natural ingredients off to boost profits and wreck your health?
 
I tell you folks. Read your food labels. Eat nature, demand nature, because chemicals are not what you want to eat. Shoot even spell check recognizes

Ice cream truck in the park was taken at Herman Park Houston. The hot Houston summers bring a longing for sno cones and ice cream.
