“Safe” Commercially packaged foods. Starred if available at 29 Commissary as of 2013.
The bar here is set pretty low I realize, but everyone has to start somewhere. This is a place for me to record food items that don’t contain hydrogenated/industrial oils, HFCS, MSG, un fermented soy products, and other suspect ingredients. While sugar is still bad, it’s a step up from HFCS so I’m leaving it in for now although eventually I would like to get proficient enough with learning what to eat to take them off the list. This is just a very basic, evolving guide to help other people (especially military families) begin the transition from SAD. I make note if I have seen a coupon for the product and if it made WAPF’s approved food list as well. Ingredients in italics means some debate attached.
